See a Missouri Ghost Town Destroyed by a Tornado & Postal Worker
It's a sad fact that some towns come to an end one way or another. One Missouri ghost town was destroyed in a most unusual fashion by two different factors: a huge tornado and a corrupt postal worker. This is its story.
I first became aware of the plight of Garber, Missouri thanks to a brief mention in an article by Only In Your State last year. There's not much left of it these days with the exception of a few buildings and a wild story about why it's now deserted.
This sycamore log church is probably in the best shape of the remaining structures in what used to be Garber, Missouri.
The good news if you stumble upon it is there are still "facilities" for sudden calls from nature.
This small township in Missouri was apparently wiped out by a large tornado nearly 100 years ago. Not many buildings survived the twister.
There's also remnants of a post office that was burned down by a worker who was trying to cover up his stealing according to the account provided by Only In Your State. Oh, and it's apparently haunted, too.
The result of a large tornado flattening the area and a postal worker who was also an arsonist leaves this small reminder of what used to be a small Missouri community...now a deserted ghost town with a sad history.
