PatriotAction Network 'The recession just outlasted us': Company town will cease to exist after falling victim to economic slump
By Daily Mail Reporter
The recession has claimed many victims, but this could be the first town to be completely wiped off the map.
The mining town of Empire in Nevada, about 100 miles northeast of Reno in the Black Rock Desert, was created in 1923.
But from June 20, it will simply cease to exist, its 300 inhabitants will no longer live there, the ZIP code won't even exist any more.
