These 16 Unbelievable Ruins In Vermont Will Transport You To The Past

Have you ever looked at an abandoned building in Vermont and have been moved, saddened and inspired by its beauty all at once?  Well, you’re not alone.  Looking at pictures of ruins has become a favorite subject of internet searches and photo galleries.  But what exactly is so compelling about these images?

Well, for one, the ruins we see in Vermont lack the hustle and bustle of a living society, as well as the constant stream of physical and sensory litter and detritus that inherently accompanies it.  We as humans have a tendency to romanticize the past, so it’s no wonder that people today are drawn to pictures of ruins and other structures that have been long left in a state of disrepair.  It’s easy to transpose the ruins’ current stillness onto the original time period and often leave the viewer remarking about how life must have been back then. Perhaps we are simply attracted to ruins because we’ve removed the human “noise” we associate with society.

But after looking at these amazing photos, it’s easy to see why society has become so interested in these types of photos.  The colors, textures, and compositions are so natural that it’s wonderfully compelling.  While it’s often sad to see places neglected and abandoned, it also gives us the ability to see a bit of history for ourselves.
