10. Virginia City & Nevada City in Montana
Virginia city and Nevada city are about a mile apart from each other, along the Alder Gulch in Montana. They are at the site of one of the most valuable deposits of gold that have been located in the Rocky mountains, with an estimated one hundred million dollars worth having been found throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. In the first three years alone, about thirty million dollars worth of gold was recovered, which made the two cities popular places for gold seekers.
When the gold ran out, however, people left- and there was only enough wealth to just about keep Virginia City running, with no chance of upgrading the infrastructure. Today, it is still the way it was then. A ghost town, a frozen reminder of the Old West. In a turnaround of fortune, it’s now a popular tourist destination where you can go to experience the thrill of the gold rush, albeit without any gold, for yourself.

9. Bodie, California
The Californian gold rush between 1877 and 1888 spawned its own series of towns full of gold seekers, with one of the largest being Bodie, in the eastern Sierra. In its heyday the town was home to more than 10,000 people; all reliant on the nearby treasures of which more than thirty five million dollars worth of gold and silver were found.
Of course, as happened with many places like this, when the gold became scarce the people began to move in search elsewhere. This soon left Bodie as an abandoned town, one that has been kept in a state of “arrested decay” for visitors to explore. The 170 wooden buildings haven’t been touched since they were abandoned, with bottles and desks still sat where they were left in the schoolhouse, saloon, church and barbershop.

8. Kennecott, Alaska
In 1900, copper had become a valuable commodity for the use in wiring as electricity became popular. Two prospectors found an area with the richest concentration of copper that had ever been found; the only problem being it was on a glacier in Alaska. Wealthy investors were brought in who provided the machinery and a railroad track and built a town called Kennecott. All they needed to do was hire a workforce, which they had to offer far higher salaries to, to make the job appealing.
By 1938, however, the mines had run dry. They were shut, along with the railroad, and Kennecott soon became a ghost town. It was later sold into private ownership, and then purchased by the park service in 1998, who have turned it into a National Historic landmark, and one of the most popular destinations in Alaska.

7. South Pass City, Wyoming
As a small gold rush town, South Pass city may seem no different to the others, but it was the site of two important historic events while the gold seekers were in town.
The city was founded in 1867 after Mormon prospectors found gold in the nearby Wind River mountains. Within a year more than 250 buildings had been built, with over 1,000 residents moving in. The half mile long main street featured hotels, restaurants, a bowling alley and dozens of saloons, but the success wasn’t to last long. After growing to around 3,000 inhabitants in 1868, the numbers began to dwindle by 1869 due to the small quantity of gold being found, and by 1872 there were only a few hundred people left.
During this successful time for the city, it also became the first place, in 1869, to introduce a women’s suffrage bill, which led to Wyoming being the first state where women could vote. Soon after that, Esther Hobart, a resident of the city, became the first woman in the country to hold a position in public office when she was appointed as the justice of the peace.
Despite all of this, South Pass city would eventually become a ghost town, with the last few people leaving for good in 1949. In 1966 it was bought from private landowners by the state of Wyoming as a present to its residents, and now is run as a tourist attraction.

Abandoned Detroit East Grand Methodist Church

The now abandoned Detroit East Grand Methodist Church was founded in the 1888, when the land was farmland. For 12 years the church moved from one location to another, “…and four times was obliged to take quarters either adjoining to or above a saloon, where the tinkle of the slot piano mingled with doxology,” according to the Detroit Free Press newspaper in 1908.

In 1899, the church moved to a new location, building a wood frame chapel in 1900. The congregation grew to 149 in 1904, and in 1907, Reverend Charles Ryerson was assigned to lead the church, no longer a mission. His first goal was the construction of a new church on land that had been bought a few blocks away. On one Sunday alone, he raised $10,000 towards the construction of the church.

The cornerstone was laid down in a ceremony June 27th, 1908, attended by leaders of other Methodist Churches from across the city. Made of red paving brick with gray stone trimmings, the sanctuary seated 750, with a gym in the basement serving as a community center. Construction had proceeded enough to where services were being held in the unfinished basement by September of 1909.

Reverend Ryerson didn’t stay long at the partially completed church, however, having come to odds with Methodist leadership over the direction his faith was taking. In September of 1909 the congregation of Fisher Church split, with one half supporting Ryerson, and the other half opposing him. His congregation retreated back to the previous location on Bellevue, while accusations about his conduct were made and responded to in the newspapers. Facing banishment to a church in North Dakota, he and 75 supporters withdrew from the Methodist Episcopal church, renaming themselves The People’s Tabernacle. Fisher Methodist continued on under Reverend Samuel Jennings, and the church was formally dedicated in March of 1910.

There is little history of East Grand Boulevard Methodist from the 1940’s on, aside from that the church was dissolved in 1985, and replaced by Second Unity Full Gospel Baptist Church, which left in 2000. The church has been vacant since then.

Abandoned Church with Bibles & Everything Left Behind – Urban Exploration



Views:10739|Rating:4.91|View Time:10:48Minutes|Likes:380|Dislikes:7
This urban exploration is an abandoned church that was left abandoned after the Reverend John W. Eden went to the upper room on July 26, 2014. The name of this abandoned church is the House of Our Redeemer located in Cleveland Ohio. It was categorized as a Baptist Church that was established in 1992 and incorporated in Ohio. Everything inside the church was left behind. I found several pianos, pastors clothing, and a Hammond organ that was also left abandoned. I would to thank you all for watching this video of an abandoned church left to decay. And a special thanks to Mckenzie for helping me with the history behind these abandoned places.

Abandoned Places in Ohio – Abandoned Church – Urbex



Views:8726|Rating:4.98|View Time:21:14Minutes|Likes:276|Dislikes:1
Thank you for joining me on this exploration of a few abandoned places left behind in a declining neighborhood in East Cleveland Ohio. The main urban exploration takes place at an Abandoned Rehoboth Temple. I know very little about the Rehoboth Temple. Me and my friend couldn’t find anything on the history of this abandoned church. So any information on this place would be greatly appreciated. Also there was living quarters inside that had a sign with the name Hollenden House. This I find weird because the Hollenden House was a luxury hotel in Cleveland that was demolished in 1962. Why would this sign be inside this abandoned church? Any input on this would be awesome. I found some other cool items such as Hammond organs, and a C. Kurtzmann antique piano. I really enjoyed this explore and I hope you did also. Please feel free to share any information about this abandoned place. I really want to know what happened to this church.
