Tasmania

I went to Tasmania, located in Glades County, on 8/9/2017.

According to the ghost town website,

Dr. J.B Ingraham homesteaded near the site of Tasmania in 1888. The town officially became Tasmania in 1916 when the community changed it’s name from Fisheating Creek to Tasmania. There were two schools The Adrian School and the Lucky Island School. The Cook family opened a trading post with turpentine, cattle, and farming the main industries. Not to mention moon-shine. By the 1930s, the school and the post office closed and many families moved away because of the Depression. The town eventally died completly when the railroad passed it. By Mike Woodfin
