These 10 Abandoned Places in Pennsylvania Are Terrifyingly Incredible

If you left your house today and never returned, what would it look like in 100 years? If no one else took possession of it or cleaned it, chances are your glass of water would remain sitting on your table indefinitely, as dust filled the glass, the table rotted away, and rats built nests in your couch. Here are some buildings and areas in Pennsylvania that experienced just that– complete abandonment. The remnants of the activities that went on there now serve to capture explorers’ imaginations.
