10 Abandoned Places In Iowa That Nature Is Reclaiming

There’s something special about cruising down the back roads and through forgotten towns in Iowa, seeing all those old, dilapidated structures that stand as the only remnants of days long gone by. You can almost feel the history of the places, and the experience leaves you wondering how it must have been on the day it was built, and why it was left to fall into disrepair. These structures are haunting, yet beautiful, and each one has its own story to tell. The following photos, which were taken by Forgotten IA: Lost and Abandoned Places of Iowa, show us a closer look at these lost and forgotten treasures.
