As we were reviewing the history of Pecos, Texas, we discovered a reference to the nearby town of Toyah. It seems that it is nearly a modern ghost town precipitated by the majority of the population abandoning their homes to move to Pecos. Having just toured Pecos, that seemed a bit hard to believe, so we headed west to Toyah to have a look.
After a quick tour of this small town, indeed it appeared that 90 plus percent of the population had departed apparently abandoning their homes and other property. It does seem clear that very few people would have been interested in buying any property here.
If Pecos was a bit depressing in terms of condition, Toyah made it look a lot better.
