This Oregon Lake Dried Up To Reveal A Lost Ghost Town

In 2015, the West Coast of the United States experienced a severe drought that greatly affected the climate of the area. For example, in Marion County, Oregon, the Detroit Lake was the lowest it had ever been on record. With the water levels so low, the reservoir slowly began to dry up, and it revealed something that nobody was expecting. It was discovered that there was an old railroad town that had been hidden beneath the water for more than 60 years.
