Misnebalam is an abandoned ghost town near Merida, Mexico.  It was inhabited from around 1910-2005.  It was once a lively little town due to the production of henequen - a plant used to extract fibers and create textiles.  In 1921, the head of henequén production, Don Fidencio G. Márquez, was attacked and murdered.  It is said that since then, ghosts and other paranormal activity began to scare the residents, so much that in 2005, they left the town for good. The henequen industry was booming at the time, but eventually fell due to the invention of more cost-effective synthetic materials.  This probably had something to do with the town's abandonment as well.  But a wander around the pool and courtyard area shows what a thriving town this once was.  You can find Misnebalam on Google Maps.  Here are some photos I took in February 2021: abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town inside an abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town inside an abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town inside an abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town cross in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned pool area of Minsebalam ghost town abandoned pool area of Minsebalam ghost town abandoned pool area of Minsebalam ghost town abandoned pool area of Minsebalam ghost town Minsebalam abandoned ghost town trees taking over an abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town sacrificial area inside an abandoned building in Minsebalam ghost town abandoned building with arches in Minsebalam ghost town
