I really love abandoned places like this, especially since it is so contemporary. I've actually considered driving back out that way from Pennsylvania just to see a few things I missed the first time.

I hope you get to see the town before it is fully demolished. You won't be disappointed.

Surprised it's not full of homeless crackheads trying to strip the copper wire from the walls.

Arizona was awesome. I checked out the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, and the Petrified Forest while I was there. I was also interested in finding old sections of Route 66 while I was out there, so I stumbled upon the Jack Rabbit Trading Post and Williams. Williams really hammed up the Rt 66 theme, which was a lot of fun since they were playing 50's/60's music outside of restaurants, and everyone was eating and dancing and having a great time. Very cool.

I wish I would have checked out Kansas a bit more. I was on the return leg of a two-week cross-country trip by myself, and by the time I hit the Plains again, I was burned out. Otherwise, I would have spent a couple more days exploring, especially that abandoned amusement park that is also in this section. I did manage to hit Wakita, Oklahoma from the movie Twister, though, just to say I did.

There was some state or federal agency keeping pretty tight tabs on the place. They were holed up in the only occupied building I found in Picher. It didn't take long after I started snooping around for some guy in a black car to show up and ask me what I was up to. I told him I was just checking the place out, and he seemed satisfied with that answer and left.

Pick me up on your way!

We have some abandoned mental hospitals/asylums in PA, which you may already know or have visited. Didn't realize you lived here.
