  1. This city is one of the best spots I have been and was a blast to explore. I had to go back a second time to cover the whole area; first in September 2018 and again in Late November. Picher Oklahoma was part of the Tri-State mining district, and was deemed contaminated in the late 90's by the EPA. A mass exodus followed and by 2010 the population had reached a mere 20 people, a shadow of what was once home to 9,000 people. Within the next 2 years the last residents were forced to leave and the city became completely abandoned. Although some buildings have been demolished, quite a few areas remain intact in both Picher and Cardin, which is adjacent and also a ghost town. All 3 towns nearby were also abandoned due to contamination from Picher. Today Picher is known as the most toxic city in the United States, and the water in the nearby streams and river is orange and red. Even the birds stay away, and the town is deathly silent.
  2. I don't remember how I found this place because I was drunk as fuck, haha. Got up in the morning and checked my email, saw a message from this site and was like damn, this place is neat. EDIT: My bad I didn't realize how old this post was.
  3. I came across this mining camp known as "Bonnie Claire" on a road trip in December of 2018. It has been abandoned for over 100 years so it is unsurprisingly badly deteriorated. The area is also contaminated with arsenic and cyanide, but of course that didn't stop me. A couple of the houses about half a klick south appear to be part of a newer mining operation and there is evidence they actually had power out here. Someone spent a few nights in one of the houses as recently as 2017, given the date on the newspapers.
  4. Absolutely. And thanks for all the welcomes y'all, I like this forum already.
  5. Alright, this is my first post on here but I will get right to it. This hospital is trashed beyond belief but was still fun to explore. It was shut down in 1992 after the USAF pulled out of George AFB following the end of the cold war. These pictures were taken in December of 2018.
