An old Northern Kentucky residence left to rot away to nothing.

A Few Abandoned Places in Northern Kentucky

I really enjoy abandonment photography, though I don't practice it nearly as much as I do landscape photography. Every once in awhile, however, I like to throw my camera in the car and just drive around to see what I can find. Sometimes you come away with something and sometimes you get completely skunked, but that's just part of the fun.

I recently did one of these drives and came away with a a few locations that I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

Left Behind

The basement of an abandoned, decaying house in Northern Kentucky.

This property was an interesting one. It contained the abandoned remains of three residences. The first was a very old house that was barely left standing. To the left of this structure was an abandoned mobile home and behind these two was a much more modern, but largely collapsed house. This newer house had everything left behind in it. Because of the structural issues I only poked my head in the basement for a quick shot.

An Old, Forgotten Church

Unfortunately I don't have any information on this church, but it's pretty clear that it has been long abandoned. It was a rather cool, unexpected find. This is the perfect example of why I enjoy exploring the back roads!

Left To Decay

The final property I found on this particular trip was this old residence. Once again, I wasn't able to find out much about this place. If you look closely at the second story, however, there's what appears to be an old sign post, suggesting that this place was perhaps used as a business at some point.


Exploring an Abandoned School

Exploring an Abandoned High School

Something I haven't done a whole lot of is exploring and photographing abandoned buildings, an activity often referred to as urban exploring or urbex. It's a subject that has always interested me, I just haven't had much chance to practice it myself. As such, I jumped on board when I was invited to go explore an abandoned high school with some friends.
