12 Abandoned Places In Oregon That Nature Is Reclaiming
We seem to have an attachment to the buildings and structures from yesteryear. It has something to do with our wanting to connect with the past. Plus, when we see an abandoned place returning to nature, it’s really cool to see how it fades. Some old structures are swallowed up by their surroundings. Others never seem to be affected by the elements. We came across the Facebook page, Abandoned Oregon, which consists of photos of abandoned sites as depicted by local photographers. These images really capture our fascination with abandonment.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
We just love how the photographers on this page honor the history of these places. Have you come across some sites in Oregon that are slowly returning to nature? Tell us in the comments below!
