20 Abandoned Places in Missouri That Nature is Reclaiming

While abandoned places can be a bit spooky, they are also a signature of what once was.  Missouri is a large state, with a lot of rural areas, small towns and farmland, so many of these places are bit remote.  However, you can also find abandoned buildings in cities…once thriving business and factories that have not been used in a long time yet have not been torn down.  Personally, I feel a little sad when I see an old building being torn down, especially one that was obviously once very beautiful and architecturally relevant to its time.  These pictures all tell a story.  Are you listening?

Some of these buildings may be torn down by now, so it’s wonderful that their images were captured. Now, even when they are gone, they will not be forgotten.  Do you have any abandoned homes or buildings where you live?  Share them below.
