Dryden & Pumpville, Texas

Located on U.S. Highway 90, which is also the Pecos Trail in southwest Texas, the ghost towns of Dryden and Pumpville were born of the Galveston, Harrisburg, & San Antonio Railroad. While tiny Dryden still reports a population of 13 and a post office, there appears to be no residents in Pumpville. However, its lonely church still welcomes a congregation on Sundays.
