10. Cahaba, Alabama
Cahaba isn't as big as the largest abandoned cities in the world, but it's still just as interesting. Alabama's first state capital was empty by the early 1900s, but visitors to the area can still tour some of the historic buildings, like St. Luke's Episcopal Church, that have been preserved after the town's addition to the National Register of Historic Places.
