“a ghost town!”

This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Atomic City, located on US Highway 26 just south of the Idaho National Laboratory in northwestern Bingham County, is only a step or two from being a ghost town these days. The place was much bigger back in the days when the Idaho National Laboratory was operating full speed ahead and nuclear power generation was still just a dream in the physicists eyes. Originally, the town was known as Midway, because it was midway between Blackfoot and Arco. Since operations at the DOE site have dropped way off, most folks still living in Atomic City are of the retired type.

Update! Totally a trailer town. Not even a spooky ghost town. My dreams were of a creepy nuclear area with a few retro eye sights. Nope! We did see a cool old fire truck and a " house" with too many tacky decorations. Not worth the turn off.
