There are a lot of buildings to check out and some kool stuff that is still standing. This is a very windy part of New Mexico so there is wind noise . I leave it because I also want to remember the conditions of the day when I look back at these.
I love the history in our country and ghost towns are part of it . Enjoy
Follow me as I travel North America in my vintage camper van hunting down beautiful and historic places. Buckle up for the ultimate road trip adventure hosted by yours truly.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to climb in some skyscrapers, break into some abandoned churches and explore them in Detroit City. Urban exploration is one of the coolest things I’ve done for a long time, and will be definitely doing it in my home town.
Check out for a more detailed look, and how to set this up for yourself!
Also a great book on urban exploration called explore everything by Bradley Garret

Sneak Preview | Urban Exploring with Freaktography Abandoned Power Plant
This Abandoned New York Power plant was built in the late 1940’s when the during a time when the hunger for electricity was rapidly increasing. The original design consisted of two boilers providing steam to a single turbine unit.
A few short years later two additional boilers were added to power a second turbine giving the plant a total output of 70MW. In the late 1980’s there was talks of converting the plat from coal burning into garbage burning however with a 50 million dollar price tag, it didn’t make it passed the planning stage.
By 2000 area residents were complaining about the increasing emissions from the plant. The plant owners blamed the increased emissions on high levels of sulfur in the coal & a state inspector was sent out & determined that the emissions violated federal standards.
Today the plant sits slowly decaying without a shred of hope of ever being powered back up again.

Talcott’s horse kicked up a rock at the mouth of pony canyon which turned out to be high grade silver and gold ore. This led to a silver rush by the time the mid 1860s rolled around this town boasted a lumber mill, saloons, brothels, assay office, banks, hospital, hotels, telegraph station, four hundred houses and at least 10k residents. Although floods, fires and elements have erased a large portion of this living ghost town what does remain are some of the finest structures in the wild west such as its frontier churches. Austin held the Lander County seat for many decades it also brought millions of dollars in silver revenue and for a short time hosted the Nevada Central Railroad. This was a town that boasted the good, bad and the ugly everything from epidemics to axe yielding men and frontier justice. Austin not only has one of the oldest saloons/hotels in the state but one of the last Greek revival court houses in the nation and one of the oldest operating Nevadan newspapers that still exist today. Today life has slowed down in Austin to about 200 residents. Many shops thrive on tourism and the sale of there jewelry. Life in this canyon dates back to 3,500 years ago when the Shoshone used Pony Canyon to hunt and sustain themselves. We welcome you to journey with us as I take our friends and viewers to the way it was!

The Annie Lytle Preservation Group has been cleaning out this abandoned school in Jacksonville for the past few years hoping one day that someone will purchase this building and save it. You can see how it used to look here:
