#timesbeach #ghosttown #history #dioxin Times Beach is a ghost town in St. Louis County, Missouri, United States, 17 miles southwest of St. Louis . Once home to more than two thousand people, the town was completely evacuated early in 1983 due to dioxin contamination. It was the largest civilian exposure to this compound in the history of the United States. In 1985, the State of Missouri officially disincorporated the city. The site of Times Beach is now a 419-acre state park commemorating U.S. Route 66. Times beach would have a worrying similarity to the ghost towns of Centralia and The Love Canal.
