When you come across an abandoned building or ruins of some kind, it’s hard to imagine how a place could become so deteriorated. It’s intriguing to look at a run down building and imagine all that has taken place within the broken windows and falling walls. Each of these spots has a story and one particular ruin, hiding in Kentucky, definitely has quite an interesting tale.
