We Dare You To Take This Road Trip To Cleveland’s Most Abandoned Places
Cleveland is an old city with a lot of history, so it only makes sense for these haunting abandoned places to still exist. They are monuments to Cleveland’s past, and exploring them can feel almost otherworldly. If you’re looking for a spooky yet fascinating tour of our city’s most abandoned places, check out the road trip below, and click

1. Joseph & Feiss Company (West 53rd Street)
Once a booming manufacturer of tailored menswear, this building has been largely abandoned since World War II. A few attempts have been made at demolishing the facility and modernizing the area, but as of 2011 the original building is being preserved.
2. Randall Park Mall (20801 Miles Rd)
This mall in the Cleveland village of North Randall closed in 2009, but much of it is still standing. It was featured in the premiere episode of Viceland's show "Abandoned."
3. Cleveland Coast Guard Station #219 (1000 Cuyahoga River Road)
This deserted Coast Guard station was built to emulate the experience of being on a ship at sea. It's a little out of the way, requiring a brief boat ride out on Lake Erie to reach it, but there's nothing else like it in Cleveland.
4. National Acme (East 131st Street)
Once one of the largest machine tool manufacturers in the country, the National Acme plant is now one of Cleveland's largest abandoned lots.
5. Warner And Swasey Building (5701 Carnegie Avenue)
Another large abandoned industrial plant, the Warner and Swasey building previously manufactured everything from handtools to weapon parts.
6. Abandoned Subway Stations (Various)
Scattered throughout Cleveland are the abandoned remains of several different subway stations. The fact that these ruins are underground adds another level of creepiness.
7. Holiday Inn/Days Hotel, North Randall (Northfield & Emery Road)
Located just outside Cleveland in North Randall, Ohio, this abandoned hotel may be a little hard to get inside of due to its completely flooded underground parking garage.
8. Euclid Square Mall (100 Euclid Square Mall, Euclid, OH)
This unsettling abandoned mall in nearby Euclid remains practically untouched by time.
Abandoned buildings like these are common throughout northeast Ohio. Are there any interesting spots we missed? Let us know in the comments!
