18 Abandoned Places in Utah that Nature is Reclaiming
It’s not uncommon to see old pioneer cabins, sheds and outbuildings in rural Utah — they’re even used to house animals or farming equipment. You’ll even find abandoned stores, gas stations, hotels and mills. These places were all abandoned long ago, and nature is starting to reclaim them. These photographs were taken between 2007 and 2015 — some of these abandoned spots might be knocked down or otherwise destroyed today.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
