Shreveport...
< on 12/16/2013 1:50 AM >
Posted on Forum: UER Forum
 
I'm traveling this week in business and will be in Shreveport tomorrow and then driving to Dallas on Tues afternoon. I'm not looking for handouts, but I'm very unfamiliar with the area. If anyone has any suggestions as to certain parts of town to hit, I would appreciate it. Keep in mind I'm rolling solo and won't be packing typical UE items. It's probably going to be just me and my camera. So not looking to get too crazy. Thanks in advance.

What can anyone tell me about the school in Shreveport? Worth a visit? I've read that there is a new owner of the property who isn't kind to people visiting.

Welp, thanks for all the replies. I guess no one replied because damn near all of Shreveport is abandoned. I had no clue where to go so I started at theBridges-McKellar House, but didn't realize how rough the area was. There was no way I was gonna enter there unprotected and alone. From there I cruised up and down Texas street. Again numerous opportunities, but none I wanted to ventur into alone. I did enter the old storage warehouse under the interstate, but it was clear I wasn't alone. When the door slammed behind me people scattered quick. I stayed long enough to here more steps and decided it was time to go. It's a shame because that place was huge and I would have really liked to get to the top floor.

Next time I'm in town, is love to meet up with a few of you locals and really get a chance to explore this area further.

You should contact RATICUS on here, that is if he doesn't contact you first.

He may be of some assistance to you.

The "right direction", when it comes to Shreveport...is generally in the "away" direction.

I stumbled upon something rather unusual today on my drive from Shreveport to Dallas. I found an abandoned home, which isn't unusual, what was that upon entering it, it was as if time just stopped inside.

I entered from a side door. When I turned left into the family room, I saw picture frames on the mantle, books on the bookshelves, a tv in the corner. The large pieces of furniture were gone, but everything else was there. So much so, I started to wonder if it was abandoned.

As I passed through the kitchen, I knew it was abandoned as it was it was in rough shape, but going through the bedrooms, it still looked somewhat inhabited.

I didn't grab too many pics because it wouldn't be much different that you taking pictures of your grandma's home. But, I did get some of the televisions (my favorite thing to photograph).

I am sure some of you are are still thinking that this place wasn't abandoned. However, I am sure it was. It was all fenced in with a locked cattle gate. Weeds grown up all around with no tire tracks going in or out.

Strange....

Hey there. Sorry I didn't see this earlier. It's 11:30 pm now and I'm sure you're already in Dallas. I'm in Tyler. A to Z had sent me a pm about you coming through, but I had a crazy busy day at work today and didn't even get online until now.

If you're back this way again sometime I'll try to catch up with you. There's not a whole lot around here, but there are a few things, depending on how much time you have. As for Shreveport, most of the places over there I would not venture into alone either. You probably made the right call on that stuff without someone with you who knows the area.

No worries, Raticus. I rarely get out to Tyler, but I should be back in Shreveport in a few months. I will hit you up then....with more notice.

More shots from this trip. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to get many shots as Shreveport was a wash. I was able to get these during my drive to Dallas.

I'll be passing through there today. Hopefully I come across something cool. I'm glad you discovered some potential locations even though no one wanted to meet up. It seems like I am a week behind you in these locations where you've been traveling lately. Too funny.

Cheers

Not many of us Shreveport locals left, I don't think there were many of us to begin with, but if anyone plans to pass through here shoot me a message and I can see what I can do.

There never has been as many explorers in Shreveport as I would expect, for the size town it is. And there are a lot of places there to explore.
