Traveling from Fresno, California, on Highway 41 toward Paso Robles, you will find this place. It's not a movie set or a ghost town, but it looks like one. We stopped there for a brief walk around the center plaza.
We were fascinated by the textures of the house facades and the unreal appearance. Each building and house told a story.
There must be many forgotten places like Stratford . Just turn left or right , take a detour on the way to your destination and you may be surprised what you discover.
We put up a short photo gallery so you can have a closer look. Enjoy.
