Centralia sets from Protocollie and Aaron

We're glad to have these two sets, taken in early and late fall respectively. You might remember Protocollie's Abandoned Turnpike set from a couple months ago, and we're glad to feature more of his work.

Aaron's set has some interesting things we haven't seen before, including a new heart-shaped sign -- this one says it's from Kingston, NY.

Thanks again guys!

If you'd like to see your PA abandonment photos on ForgottenPA, send them in an email to, along with a few words about the location.

Urban Ghosts Media

Here's a site that reminds me a lot of our old buddies at WebUrbanist: a webzine that features urban myth, lifestyle, architecture and -- naturally! -- urban exploration. There's a ton of interesting content and the site layout is about as pleasant as any I've seen. Well worth checking out!

Pennsylvania Portal blog

Here's a fascinating blog dedicated to exploring the products that come from right here in Pennsylvania. Some are pretty well-known, like Martin guitars and Yuengling lager (my personal favorite beer!), but there are some real surprises -- Pyrex, for instance, is made in PA; I won't spoil the rest, though. Head over to the Pennsylvania Portal blog, and be prepared to lose an hour or three!
