This web page is about the vanished communities of Morgan County, Ky. Many communities that grew up during the timber booms of World War I, and the onset of the"Roaring Twenties", vanished or became ghost towns when the timber industry ended. That was true of Lenox that no longer exists and Cannel City which is a ghost town.
