In 2006, Michigan’s unemployment rate was recorded as being the worst in the entire United States. People left. Businesses closed. Once swarming cities were full of boarded-up windows and locked doors. Some have since recovered and reopened, but many have not. Abandoned Michigan: Doorways to Decay continues to shed light on these forgotten places. Step inside haunting and beautiful locations including mental asylums, paper mills, churches, ghost towns, trailer parks, and more. Witness the beauty that can be found in decay as we look at these buildings, many for the last time, before they are lost forever to time or the wrecking ball. Abandoned Michigan not only takes you inside these lost places, but tells their history and how they came to be abandoned.
