Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been fascinated with abandoned stuff. I know I’m not the only one, as I’ve spent countless hours searching online for anything and everything related to the subject.
Just a word of caution: if you start to search, be warned – you will find yourself immersed in endless subjects and images like I was.
The best part is, there’s are countless topics in relation to the subject: anything and everything from cars, buildings, entire towns, and even boats, as seen below for demonstration.
After a few weeks of browsing and reading, I came to the decision that I would dedicate a section of this website to abandoned stuff. I could have created a new website just for that topic, but that’s another hassle that I don’t want now.
It won’t be a constant series or anything, so don’t expect too much at first, but there will be a dedicated category to the subject.
My goal is to just document anything I can find personally here in Ohio, including pics and any information about what I find, if possible. I enjoy a story that goes along with pics as it seems to add to the authenticity of it.
With that said, enjoy the collection of abandoned boats that I found and stay tuned for more on this subject of abandoned stuff.

For Taco Bell particularly, empty or re-purposed restaurants are easily recognized in the suburban landscape. Their distinctive architecture (another franchise requirement) of arched “bell” window frames and pitched roofs may spark a craving for Nachos Bell Grande, but they’re also a marker of businesses that couldn’t keep up.
I came across this article earlier today and wanted to share. While they aren’t abandoned, I do like how they found new life as other business ventures. Humorous? Definitely. Still, it makes me wonder why Taco Bell didn’t just tear them down. Oh well.
I think there might be a few of these buildings not too far from where I live. I’ll have to go driving and see what I can find.
