On our way from Prineville up to the Columbia River Gorge, we were excited to check out a couple of supposed ghost towns. The first is Antelope.
Antelope has the distinction of having suffered through a takeover of sorts. You might remember news reports on the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh in the early 80's. It's a long and strange tale. There's a Wikipedia link below if you want much more detail.
Antelope isn't quite a ghost town these days, but it's close. There are some houses around the few blocks of the town site. But the school is closed and fairly gutted. The town does have a post office, something of a mobile home, outside of which, at the base of its flagpole is a plaque commemorating the Rajneesh "invasion."
If you head north out of Antelope on Oregon 218, wind your way up the hill and proceed about six and half miles, you come to Shaniko.
