When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
It isn’t every day that we stumble across an abandoned place in Pennsylvania that’s as intriguing or spooky as the one we’re going to feature in this article. The old Monongahela Hotel was originally built back in 1911, and it had many decades of good times before it finally closed. At just $4 per night in some instances, this hotel was a favorite place among weary travelers looking to hang up their hats for the night. It was more than a hotel – it was a whole shopping experience if you wanted one.
Editor’s Note: Due to the nature of abandoned destinations, many of the places featured in this series are off-limits to visitors or have actually been demolished.
