Stockyards Photography in Downtown Lancaster

Just wanted to give this comment a little more attention:

Hello. I have photographed the Stockyards very intensely over the past four years, and will be showing most of those images, starting First Friday, December 5, 2008, at The Starving Artist Cafe, downtown Lancaster. I'd love for other Stockyard "enthusiasts" to stop by and share some stories.

Thanks,
Howie Hartman


This is a great chance for our Lancaster-area readers to support a local artist who shares our passion for places like the Stockyards. If you can make it, head to the Starving Artist Cafe!

Two Sets from GeeTee: Abandoned Bar and Apartments

We're thrilled to have GeeTee's photos from two unique locations: The Four & a Quarter Bar and Joe's Apartments.

This abandoned bar is located in Republic.

This abandonment's most unique feature: a black mermaid!

Joe's Apartments is located in southwestern PA -- a fire swept through the building, GeeTee says, leaving only the first floor accessible.

More and Bigger Photos

Over the next week or so I'll be taking down the smaller 600x450 pictures we've been using for a while and replacing them with the full 1024x768 versions. I'll also be adding a number of pictures we didn't include in the original posts -- frankly I don't know why I left these out, but it will give our regulars a little more to look at, and a good reason to go back through our old posts again.

Oh and as of last month, we've been running this site for a whole year! Time flies when you're a twentysomething I guess.

Linfield Industrial Park: Future Power Plant?

It's still early in the process, but Linfield Industrial Park could soon become a trash-burning, energy-generating "power plant." According to this article, the general idea is to ship trash in by rail and convert it into renewable energy. Not a bad use for the site, though we're loathe to lose another good urbexing spot.

Bluecapriethan's Michter's Distillery Shots

Photobucket

Michter's, aka Bomberger's Distillery, is an abandonment we've discussed quite a bit in comment sections of many of our posts. While Brian and I are still planning on heading up there after we explore some places in Luzerne County, Bluecapriethan has already gotten some good photos of the distillery. Here's what he had to say about them:

I said I was going to get them, so here they are. I finally got a weekend free so I drove on up to Michter's with my wife. I wanted to get out and take pictures, but there were locals milling about (I've heard they are unfriendly) so I snapped a bunch from the car.

Thanks again to Bluecapriethan for letting us use these photos. Michter's is one of the oldest PA abandonments we know of, and one of the least explored.

If you have photos from abandoned places in PA, and you'd like to see them on ForgottenPA, just send an email to spampoet0023@yahoo.com.
