Abandoned, neglected, forgotten buildings call my name. They have probably been seen my thousands of people or more, but who is the last person who lived there? Who cares about the building? What if no one else is paying attention? Will those stories and those descriptions be forgotten? As much as I love stories of saving historic buildings, it is a reality that not everything will be saved and restored and loved. Some are just deteriorating on the side of the road or back in the woods or down a quiet country road.
I love living in Vermont and driving in the beautiful warm weather. There is always something intriguing to see. Often I want to take a photograph of a building; but I don’t always stop. Usually I regret the decision not to stop because it might be a long time before I’m traveling the same route. In order to remedy that, I’m going to do my best to stop and photograph the abandoned, neglected, overgrown and forgotten historic buildings (or even those that are just old but look interesting) or roadside attractions.
Thus, I bring to Preservation in Pink, an “Abandoned Vermont” category. This page will serve as an index for the category, as I intend to make it a regular feature on PiP. You can also find the posts in the category section on the sidebar.
