Whats up peeps

I'm working on a longer post exploring a lot of the old ghost towns around the Texas Panhandle. I've got a few more on my list still to go, so in the mean time here is a set of photos from a very well preserved church I stumbled across.

The town the church is actually one of the oldest in the area; the cemetery has graves dating back as far as the mid 19th century. There really isn't much else here, just the church, a still-operational grain mill, cemetery, and maybe 4 houses (2 abandoned, 2 lived-in).

1.

Church exterior is pretty bland. Simple white building, locked doors.

POE:

2.

Inside the back rooms:

In the main chamber:

Huh. Actually disappointing this is cinder block construction. Worst building type in the world.

Thanks for sharing though!




RIP Blackhawk

Cool find! This church seems pretty large for the rural panhandle area - and minimal vandalism from what I can tell which is always a big bonus. I've found lots of old churches out there, but 90% of them are the tiny, steepled one-room ones that are scattered about pretty much everywhere in the U.S.
I was just out in that area and would like to go back before the stifling heat takes over again. I did find a church in the OK panhandle however that really caught my attention. This thread is just my reminder that I need to go back soon.




I wandered till the stars went dim.

Yeah it was definitely larger than I would've expected for how little there was around it. Did not seem like there was any vandalism whatsoever actually... zero graffiti, and a lot of church paperwork, flyers, mail, etc were all still there on some of the shelves; it all looked completely untouched save for all of the bird damage.

Awesome find! I've always wanted to find a true ghost town, but sadly the Great Lakes region is too well developed for those. Maybe someday.




Indiana Jones wasn't an archaeologist, he was an urban explorer. Archaeologists do a lot less running and a lot more paperwork.
