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.

The house with the brick buttresses has been torn down as the younger Centralians, John Lokitis (it was his house) and John Comarnisky, have been forced by PA to move.

It seems as though Centralia won't be there much longer. The state wants everybody out soon. The Ukrainian Catholic church on the north hill, St Mary's, is still open though.

Re: the beautiful fall picture of the Orthodox cemetery and Centralia generally, вечная память. Eternal memory.

I have a picture of the row home(s) with the buttresses from September 2009. I totally didn't realize the house had been razed. I also have a picture of one of the red DEP testing sites (I'm guessing?) that has "Do not back over with tour bus" written into the concrete base.
