Abandoned Randoms: Elizabethtown, KY

On several trips through Elizabethtown, I’ve noticed that there are many, many abandoned houses, most of which are not quite as big or interesting as the two homes photographed in my previous posts.  They are also in more populated areas, which makes my normal snooping activities a bit more risky.  Due to the above factors, I opted to take quicker drive-by shots of these structures from either the sidewalk or the car.

So, for your viewing pleasure and in no particular order, here are and abandoned randoms of E-town.

This map shows the locations of the first two houses.  Changing street names and a lack of actual street addresses due to age makes identifying these residences a bit more difficult than normal.

    • Hi Gigi,

      Thanks for your comment! Was the 210 E Brown house your grandmother’s home? It’s so interesting to hear about how homes went from being loved and inhabited to standing lonely and abandoned. I’d be interested in any more information you may have.
