Abandoned - Highways 8 and 86

Art & Home is a business specializing in unique furniture and decor.  It’s 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. Although 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 have one caveat. Some of the places I show as abandoned might actually be in use for some reason — perhaps as a hunting rest stop for example.
