The town of Afton may not be a true ghost town since there are a few houses and a beautiful little church still in the area but the row of old abandoned buildings sure makes it feel like a ghost town.
Located between Indian River and Onaway many people past through the little town on M-68. The town started as a lumber camp in 1887. In 1905 it was given a post office. The nearby Pigeon River was similar to the Afton River in Scotland and thus the town was named after it.
