Today’s entry takes us to a location that is not only abandoned, but also no more. The Google maps screenshot of the buildings below (Aug 2013) is all that remains of the structures that used to sit in Redmar Plaza along North Wilson Drive just outside Fort Knox’s Wilson Gate.
The building on the right appears to have once been M’s Used Cars based on a faded sign that still sits in the parking lot. The other building, complete with a drive-thru, appears to have been either a restaurant or a café (assumed for the purposes of this article to have been a café based on local sources).
Fast forward to present-day, where these buildings are now lots littered with shattered glass, charred brick and wood, and scorched metal.
The photo above is taken from the back of the building that appears to have been a restaurant. The drive-thru barriers are still intact in the far left of the photo. The shallow foundation is now full of rubble and burned-out concrete.
There was surprisingly little information available on these buildings. A google search shows that the Redmar Plaza is for sale.
A final google search shows that these buildings were disposed of via controlled burn back in December of 2013 by the Radcliff FD.
