Nature Is Reclaiming This One Abandoned Washington Spot And It’s Actually Amazing

Located on the Olympic Peninsula, the ghost town of Bordeaux was one of the longest-lived logging company towns in the Northwest. The remains of the once-booming area have long since started to deteriorate, and now nature has almost fully reclaimed the space.

Sadly, Bordeaux is closed to the public due to concerns over potential graffiti and vandalism. And even though this is now private property, we found footage of a trip through the ruins from 1988, courtesy of tenalquot on YouTube. We can only imagine what the area looks like now.

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:

Bordeaux may not be accessible, but if you want to see some Washington ghost towns in person, just take our ghost town road trip.
