I used to pass through there in the late 1990s on my way to and from college a couple times a year. At the time there were a couple houses left, the fire department and I think a store called the Speed Spot. There might have been a few foundations left, but most buildings had been torn down.
From what I recall the houses had brick buttresses against one side, like extra chimneys. I assumed they had used to be row homes and the buttresses were needed to keep them up when the ones around had been torn down.
Sometimes sections of ground would smoke a bit. Once the cemetery itself seemed to be smoking. But its not just the town that's eerie. The town is in the mountains, but as you drive down out of it you start to notice that the hills around you aren't just regular mountainside. You're driving through a valley between massive piles of coal slag or some other sort of rubble just piled up and left there indefinitely. Only white birch trees seemed to grow sparsely on those piles (due to acidity?).
