Sometimes the most magnificent and beautiful structures are abandoned to the ravages of time and left as haunting husks of their former selves. The Woodward Avenue Presbyterian Church in Detroit, Michigan is one such place. What was once a glorious church is now crumbling into a creepy edifice of decay, like something out of a post-apocalyptic movie.
The Woodward Avenue Presbyterian Church is built in an English Gothic style, measuring 184 feet by 104 feet, and is constructed of rough rock with limestone trim. This church has changed ownership several times since its abandonment. A tech company was starting to restore the building, however, it was disallowed to do business in Detroit after having bribed a city official. Michigan is full of creepy, abandoned places, and you can see many of them for yourself on this road trip we’ve created, and you can even find a complete town that has been abandoned!
