Thirty years ago today, at 2:30AM: Waukegan, Illinois suffered its worst fire in history when the Karcher Hotel burned. Just two years ago this week, however: it celebrated its rebirth after 27 years of abandonment!

I've featured Karcher here before, but now a complete history and exploration writeup is on jonrev.com; a new website which was launched earlier this month. Enjoy!

This is absolutely fantastic. Great write up and great seeing the history of the place mixed with its rock-bottom state and then it's complete revival. Warms my soul! Nice job!

I was in a tower here in October and was fascinated by the 1930s freight elevator, completely manual as you described. It's a little different than the one you took a photo of but similar.

^Thank you much! That one definitely looks newer; I wonder how long manually-driven freight elevators were the norm. I've only found a few like those, neither of which were operational.

Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.

Why in the blue fuck are there so many spam bots congregating in this thread.
