The Great Pyramid of Bedford-Needmore, Indiana

Largely forgotten in the woods of rural Indiana, the Great Pyramid of Bedford-Needmore is a monument to poor planning coupled with government spending.  Little more than a disorganized pile of stones, this is all that remains of $700,000.00 effort to build a limestone "amusement park" near the so-called Limestone Capital of America, Bedford Indiana.

Demolished Anatok Plantation Mansion, Bardstown, Kentucky

Located in Bardstown, Kentucky, the historic Anatok plantation house was built in 1847.  By the time you read these words and see the pictures that follow, it may have been torn down.  These are photos of its final days, waiting as the wrecking crew guts it, tearing it down, brick by brick.  If the current court order is pulled, the house will again face demolition.

Ruins of Frankel Memorial Chapel, Louisville, Kentucky


Built in 1905, the Frankel Memorial Chapel was located in the rear of the Adath Israel cemetery in Louisville, Kentucky.  After years of apparent neglect, the roof of the building collapsed during sort of repair attempt in the summer of 2012. The debris has all been removed, perhaps for recovery and reuse, but the building itself is still little more than a shell despite the passage of almost a year.

Abandoned Storage Units, Jeffersonville, Indiana

We've been to a lot of interesting and strange places while working on this site, most of which were notable only for what we saw.  These abandoned storage units, on the other hand, were truly scary to wander through.  It felt like a creepy movie; every door, every aisleway.  This is what we saw that day.
