It's October! This month Joe and Jaye will be doing some "spooky", or rather "really interesting" stories on the history of the North Shore. In this week's episode, they discuss four ghost towns- once-thriving communities that have fallen victim to changing times in Lake and Cook Counties. Join them as they sit on the outskirts of one of these towns to talk about the communities of Forest Center, Sawbill Landing, Mineral Center, and Chippewa City. Find out why these towns existed and what caused their ultimate demise in this episode of Exploring the North Shore.
