I went to Hardaway, located in Gasden County, on 2/7/2017. I completed Gasden County today. Yayee!
According to the ghost town website,
Hardaway, a Gadsden County town in the Florida peninsula near the state line and north of Quincy, based its livelihood on a huge tobacco plantation. Things were going well until a tobacco blight in the late 1920s wiped out the crops, causing the the agricultural workers living there to pull up stakes and seek work elsewhere. The town was abandoned and by the 1960s, no buildings remained and pine forests had reclaimed most of the area occupied by the town. A developer is now marketing some of the old Hardaway town site as Hardaway Hills, offering homes appealing to people wanting a rural getaway. By Ken Dryden
