All of the photos we use for any article always have a little citation underneath them that links to the original source. With how adept we all have come with scrolling through stories (I’m just as guilty), it’s an easy thing to miss. However, today we’re diving into that little citation and meeting the group behind most of our abandoned features, AbandonedAR. We tagged along on their latest adventure and it was truly fascinating.
***Please Note: Never go into an abandoned building without proper permissions.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Please support these guys and the important preservation work they do!
For the full history and more pictures of the Center, you can go to AbandonedAR’s site. You can also explore the other locations they’ve visited.
