8 Forgotten Abandoned Places in America



From desert ghost towns and mines; to hidden metropolitan locations; these are 8 Forgotten Abandoned Places in America

8. Glenrio | TEXAS, NEW MEXICO |
Don’t STOP, KEEP GOING

Even google decided not to drive through this area again, look at the quality of the pictures, so 2007 !

Glenrio was originally known as Rock Island, it was founded over 1,000,000 …. Hours ago. (120 years), if you can’t do the math in your head, the year was 1903.

What made this ghost town popular was its prime location, half of it being in Texas, and the other half in New Mexico, it was also a pitstop on the famous Route 66.

Many people find beauty in the abandoned gas station and surrounding buildings, others try to scurry away as fast as possible.

7. Clairton | Pennsylvania
What used to be….

Clairton is the home of the largest coke manufacturing facility in the U.S.A, and no, we are not talking about the Refreshing Soft Beverage Coca Cola; rather, the “fuel” created from black coal. It is used in the manufacturing of steel. Clairton is one of those towns that you hear about on the news, you know, “coal country” or in this case its better to say “steel country” .

Traveling around the town on google maps, you can see many abandoned homes, overgrown sidewalks, just avenues of broken dreams.

Perhaps the most striking neighbourhood is located on Lincoln Way, every house on this street was abandoned… No one really wants to talk about it; or even give exact reasons as to why this neighbourhood was affected so much more than the rest…

In 2015, Lincoln Way was ravaged by a fire, some of the 30 or so homes were completely destroyed.

Local authorities have vehemently opposed any stories about supposed hauntings or ghosts,

“I don’t know where people are getting these stories. People are listening to them and then they’re running with it….. This town has a lot of good history. But as far as Lincoln Way is concerned, I don’t know why it stands out.”

Maybe because a streetful of people decided to leave ? Granted it wasn’t an overnight operation… but still, makes you wonder.

6. Sideling Hill Tunnel | PENNSYLVANIA
See you on the other side

In the 1940s the Pennsylvania Turnpike was nicknamed the “Tunnel Highway”, having not 6, not 8 but 7 tunnels in its path ! By the 70s the road was so busy that expansions had to be made. Some smart people did some math and found out that the best thing to do was to bypass 3 tunnels; and merge the other 4.

At this point, Sideling Hill Tunnel became a post apocalyptic dream location; no traffic, no people, just you and the dilapidated road.

The site was used to train soldiers for the iraq war; policemen used parts of it as a shooting range and a small company called Pike 2 Bike tried to make it a tourist destination.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, the critically acclaimed movie The Road also shot a bunch of scenes there!

5. Two Guns | ARIZONA

4. Animas Forks | COLORADO

This picturesque deserted mine is hidden along the Alpine Loop in Colorado. The first settlers came around 1873; and it took only a few years for Animas Forks to become a full fledged community.

Just like most bustling mine towns of the time; as soon as the profits dried up, so did the town. These days; Animas Forks is owned and operated by the Bureau of Land Management.

QUICK QUESTION: How much land does the BLM own ?

About 247.3 Million Acres; or about ⅛ of the country. Anytime you are driving through the middle of nowhere USA and wonder who owns the land; chances are it’s the BLM.

3. Pleasure Beach | CONNECTICUT

2. Grain Silos | INDIANA
What is the most forgettable state?

Seriously; what do you think the most forgettable state is ? Comment away !

Indiana is home to hundreds of abandoned grain silos that have somehow managed to survive longer than their surrounding communities.

A great example is Corwin; Indiana. Apparently; its not even a ghost town; being described as an “extinct” town…. Hmmmmm.

We also have the town of Sloan ; Dunn ; and many many more.

    most forgettable state IMO is my home state, ILLinois. I haven't lived there in 40 years,. Now I live in Florida, the state where everyone goes if they are in trouble, running from the law or starting over and bringing all their bad baggage with them

    I attended the 1964 World's Fair as a member of my high school band marching as the honor band for Wisconsin Day. The 2yr fair run was highly successful, a popular vacation destination.
    And get this, everyone attending the fair, including our band on our free time sightseeing day there, dressed up, dresses, sport coats and ties etc. You saw no shorts, blue jeans, tennis type shoes, or casual wear on anyone. Amazing! Those were the days.

    I’m from New York and now live in queens. My grandpa helped built the unisphere and all surrounding areas. There’s talk now and proposals on restoring the entire sight. There’s no way they’re gonna demo it— it’s declared a national landmark now ?

    Would u know if pleasure beach during the summer months Would be a perfect place to bike so I’m looking on Bing maps thinking I could take the Jeep out a bit far but it looks like when you’re reached of Long Beach. That enters it it looks like it turns into a dirt trail instead of a road so I’m thinking if I just park my car on Long Beach and then take the bike the rest away what do you think would that be a good parking area
