Deserted Texas consists of a group of explorers, historians and media professionals who enjoy researching Texas history and visiting towns that once bustled with throngs of people, but now lay dormant as reminder of a time long passed.
Rock Island, Texas was thought to be a ghost town by our group. One of our group members remembered reading somewhere that it was. After this video was online for a couple of years, residents protested that Rock Island was not a ghost town. We apologize to anyone offended by this potential misclassification.
Our group does not classify towns as ghost towns. We just visit ghost towns listed in books and other online resources for the purpose of visually documenting them. Many of the ghost towns listed did not have photos or video and if they did they were old and/or low resolution.
