About Abandoned

Abandoned tells the story of a forgotten America.

The project began in 1998 as Ohio Valley Abandoned, covering abandoned and historic sites in northeastern Kentucky, southern Ohio, and western West Virginia. Today, Abandoned is one of the largest and most comprehensive websites chronicling abandoned and historic sites in the United States.

Since then, content from the site has been featured on a circa 2003 album cover for Texas band Bishop Harmony, in the 2004 and 2005 edition of Limestone, a journal of art and literature published by the University of Kentucky Press, in a 2004 edition of Athens Si magazine for Ohio University, in a 2005 article for Cleveland Scene.
