Abandoned - Highways 8 and 86
Art & Home is a business specializing in unique furniture and decor. Its writers have said:
“There’s something oddly romantic about the visual impact of abandoned homes. I suppose it’s similar, in some ways, to the fascination we have with shipwrecks. However, these homes have been left to decay for entirely different reasons than being sunk to the bottom of the ocean.
“Sometimes there is a history behind the abandonment, but often these once fine and noble homes are abandoned for reasons we may never know or understand, and perhaps that is part of the mystery that intrigues us.”
I like to go toward Ogema and Timm’s Hill. Sometimes I will take Hwy 8, other times Hwy 86. In November 2018, I noted an abundance, a “treasure trove” of abandoned homes and vehicles. Let me show you what I mean.
I have one caveat. Some places I show as abandoned might be in use for some reason — perhaps as a hunting rest stop, for example.
