The Creepiest Ghost Town In Alaska Is The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of
This abandoned homestead near Nome is a true ghost town in northwestern Alaska. Pilgrim Hot Springs lies on the Seward Peninsula. The hot springs have attracted several different eras of inhabitants over the years but currently, the handful of remaining structures are sinking into the swampy ground. This dilapidated homestead is falling apart and surrounded by steam from the hot springs water. The echoes of the past are alive and well at Pilgrim Hot Springs, a creepy spot to visit.
Pilgrim Hot Springs, also known as Kruzgamepa, is located on the southeast bank of the Kruzgamepa River, about 8 miles (13 km) south of milepost 65 of the Kougarok Road.
