Time-capsule regional shopping mall locked-down and guarded like Fort Knox for 15 years. Two levels of stores with three well-preserved anchors that were accessible at one point or another. Undoubtedly the best-preserved abandoned mall of the 20th century, featuring storefronts and retail aesthetics not seen in decades. Sadly trashed throughout the summer of 2018, and now sealed again because people couldn’t keep a lid on the place — however on top of our usual antics, we rescued and archived loads of historic photographs and video footage for posterity before the place went to hell.
Status: Abandoned, sealed with all doors welded shut as of November 2018
