Enjoy the ground and aerial footage of the abandoned St. Nicholas Central Breaker near Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania. The historic complex is in the process of being demolished.

This is the second video that Abandoned has produced, with footage from both a GoPro and a GoPro Karma drone. This is the second time with the Karma in the field, so the video may not be as fluid or smooth, but with practice, we hope to become better at it. (The first attempt landed the drone in a tree!)

What do you think of this video? Do you want to see text or an audio overlay of the history of these places? More uplifting music? More aerials? I look forward to your suggestions and comments!

Support Abandoned

Can you believe Abandoned has been online for over 16 years?

Neither can I, and what a wild ride it has been over all of that time. Today, Abandoned is one of the oldest websites dedicated to documenting abandoned and historic properties. It has been a success, in part, because of your continued support.

Abandoned is an expensive venture. Yearly, it costs $1,200 just to operate our server; $250 for domain names; and $500 in legal costs. That’s a lot that we pay out-of-pocket so that you and others like you can enjoy Abandoned advertisement free.

Please consider donating just $3 to help offset the costs of operating Abandoned.
