When The Lake Dried Up, This Oregon Town Was Shocked To See They Weren’t The First Settlers There

After a long and intense drought in 2015, Detroit Lake in Marion County, Oregon made history as it hit an all-time low. As the reservoir dried up, something remarkable was revealed – an old railroad town that had been submerged under the lake for over 60 years! Unseen by human eyes since the 1950s, this ghostly village was now exposed to the world after many decades of being hidden beneath the water.
