This Entire Neighborhood Near Cleveland Was Mysteriously Abandoned And Nobody Knows Why

In recent years, Cleveland has undergone a fantastic transformation. Once-struggling communities have been reinvented as havens for artists and dreamers, and its culture is finer than ever. However, parts of Greater Cleveland have not enjoyed quite so much growth. Some have actually experienced the opposite, sinking deeper into destruction day by day. Prepare to take a virtual tour through one of East Cleveland’s mysteriously abandoned neighborhoods, because this is one place you won’t want to visit in person.

Please note: Most of the buildings in this neighborhood are still privately owned or owned by the county and are therefore closed to the public. Please respect the property owners and do not attempt to visit without permission. Trespassing is a crime and the decrepit state of many of these structures makes them unstable and unsafe to enter. The photos above are intended to give you a virtual look inside these abandoned places from a safe – and legal – distance.
