Melancthon, a ghost town with future?

Melancthon, a town booming in 1870's, started to decline after World War I, and never recovered. Post office closed in 1969, the railway was removed around 1996 and last building was demolished in 2007.


In 2006, the old town site was reclaimed by Ontario government and found new use as the site of a massive government wind farm. The huge turbines are towering along both sides of the highway for several miles.
