On the last Sunday in June each year the town performs a little play about how they once seceded from the United States-- it's a pretty crazy story. Also, if you're into the whole ghost town thing, there are some abandoned buildings from the 1850's or so that you can still visit (the Blacksmith's shop is especially cool)
