* The city of León, Nicaragua was originally situated at the Western shore of Lake Xolotlan or Lake Managua as it is known today. After several natural disasters, the city was moved dead in the cemeteries saints in the churches and all a bit further to the West to the place where it stands today. Nicaragua's only UNESCO world heritage sites are the ruins of old León and the cathedral of new León.

* Many many pre-1492 cities were abandoned or had their population wiped out due to plagues brought by the European conquerors or warfare. Some are still rumored to lurk out there buried in the jungle. Machu Picchu came only to widespread attention in the West in 1991, centuries after it had been a major city.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': Cinnabar Island became this during the TimeSkip that separates ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red and Blue]]'' from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Gold and Silver]]''. Because the town was ravaged by a volcanic eruption, the inhabitants and Pokémon who once lived there were evacuated and moved elsewhere. The few people still residing in Cinnabar stay in the now-rebuilt Pokémon Center, though even then it's implied that Cinnabar is now merely a stop-gap location.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Videogame/{{Undertale}}'' killing everyone you meet will result in all the towns you enter being almost completely empty. Partly because, well, you killed them and because the rest of the monsters are fleeing for their lives. The music also slows down to a crawl, adding to the empty and desolate feeling.

* In an old ''{{CasperTheFriendlyGhost}}'' comic book, the Ghostly Trio came home from their vacation upset, claiming that the ghost town they went to had no ghosts, only a guy selling souvenirs. It ''did'', however, have a "little haunted house" that they were terrified of, which followed them home. (Actually, it was a ghostly dog in a doghouse, owned by a prospector who was using it to sniff out gold.)

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosewood,_Florida Rosewood, Florida]] was mostly-black village in an area of the DeepSouth notorious for lynchings. In 1923, a mob of several hundred whites, spurred by the alleged rape of a white woman in a nearby town, burned Rosewood to the ground and massacred several residents. The incident was largely forgotten, with both the victims and the perpetrators (and their descendants) remaining silent for decades. It was not until TheEighties that the massacre became public knowledge.
