What are the most abandoned places in Michigan?
- This abandoned village in Michigan may be cursed holding its only remains, a creepy old cemetery. Pere Cheney, Michigan was once a prosperous town, then in 1893 sickness struck. Folks died when diphtheria swept through, killing more again a few years later and almost destroying the entire population. The illness was brought on by a curse, some believe, from differing accounts. One says the town was built on top of an ancient American Indian burial ground and another blames the curse on the rage of a scorned woman who was banished from the town. Folks have reported unexplainable cold spots and orb sightings. Is this abandoned village cursed?
- This eerie and fantastic footage takes you inside Michigan’s abandoned zoo. The Detroit Zoo first opened in 1910 on the charming Belle Isle, an island park in Detroit. In the 1950s, the zoo moved to its current location in Royal Oak. At that time, Belle Isle was converted into a children’s zoo until the 1980s when it was called Safariland. The combination of animal escapes and financial problems led the zoo to close in the early 2000s.
- It doesn't get much creepier than this abandoned Presbyterian church in Michigan. The English Gothic-style Woodward Avenue Presbyterian Church in Detroit was glorious in its day. Construction began in 1910 and by 1921 it drew in more than 2,200 members. And what remains in the decaying debris is puzzling since it closed in 2005. An enormous pipe organ, stained glass windows, and decorative hanging lanterns remain in the dusty dwelling. Why are these valuable items left to rot?
