Description of Bosler Ghost Town, Wyoming

         

Bosler Ghost Town is a historic abandoned town in central Albany County in a state of Wyoming. It was founded in the late 19th century along the Laramie River. It lies on the crossroads of US Routes 287 and 30. Bosler was abanonded in the early 20th century as the local railroad went out of industrial use. The climate here is fairly arid at an elevation of 7,080 feet (2,158 meters) above sea level. Its dry cold climate is largely the reason why many of the furtniture pieces, house items, numerous vehicles and other remains are well preserved despite years of neglect.

 

Bosler is not completely abandoned today. About a dozen of residents still live here. The only business that is open today is Doc's store that sells pieces of furniture collected from the nearby residencies and a Bosler School. Although Bosler, Wyoming is unincorporated it still has a functional post office with the ZIP code of 82051.  Numerous residencies are abandoend and easily accessable. However you have to be careful and watch your step as many of the wooden buildins are gradualy falling apart and rot away. Jalan Crossland song "Bosler" describes life in Bosler, WY as idyllic and peaceful. Today looking at the abandoned town the song gets a new meaning.

         

Jalan Crossland "Bosler"

Well I write you this letter from my downtown apartment
Pray you receive it before I am gone
Says I'm goin out West as soon as I'm able
And I's kinda hopin you might come along

There's somethin that's callin me when I am sleepin
Or locked in bathroom at work gettin stoned
It tells me I'm lonesome and hard as I'm tryin
This Emerald City don't feel like my home
I dream of a trailer in Bosler Wyoming
With tires on the roof dear and you by my side
We could watch Flintstones and draw unemployment
As I dream of Bosler when I close my eyes

I picture you holdin your Harlequin novel
Gettin baked like a pot pie in the afternoon sun
While I fix the fan belt that goes to the engine
Of the '69 Pinto that don't never run

And dirty faced children come 10 come 20
The fruit of our loins and the tubes we ain't tied
They play in the street and they don't ask for money
Cause in Bosler Wyoming there ain't much to buy

I dream of a trailer in Bosler Wyoming
With tires on the roof dear and you by my side
We can pitch horseshoes at stray cats on Sunday
As I dream of Bosler when I close my eyes

And the wind may blow, the rain may pitch
The TV may blare while the neighbors all bitch
We'll have it made in the shade as we lay
on our hide away mattress that lives in the couch

I dream of a trailer in Bosler Wyoming
With tires on the roof dear and you by my side
We can have hot wings and Bourbon for breakfast
And I dream of Bosler when I close my eyes

I write you this letter from my lime green apartment
I pray you receive it before I am gone
It says I'm goin out west just as soon as I'm able
And I's kinda hoping you might come along
