America's Ghost Towns

Dukes County, Mass.

Number of homes: 17,188
Vacancy Rate: 57 percent
Population: 15,527

Dukes County encompasses the island of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. The enemy of the local budget is, as is true for most of the counties on this list, falling property values. Vacationers still flock to the resort island in the summer as do seasonal workers. The county is close to deserted when the weather turns cold.
