They can be found down a back road, hidden off a two-lane highway, in a disappearing small town, or in a city—you never know what abandoned locations you will discover when exploring the vast landscape of Oklahoma. Join the Abandoned Oklahoma team as they tell the story of the school bell ringing for the last time at Dunjee School in Spencer, Oklahoma; the closing of the roadside treasure W. S. Kelly Merchandise in Cogar, Oklahoma; and the end of an era for Lindley Hospital in the town of Duncan. The story of the last laps around the Tulsa Speedway and the final days of the mysterious Abundant Life Building in Tulsa are told through research, personal experiences, and beautiful photography. There isn’t much time hasn’t touched and the answers to the questions behind some of Oklahoma’s most talked about abandoned locations will be found within the pages of this unique publication.

THE ABANDONED ATLAS FOUNDATION has been dedicated to preserving the rich past of Oklahoma, starting in 2009 with AbandonedOK.com.

They aim to create a database of historic information, so that when these buildings are demolished, burned down, reclaimed by Mother Nature, or restored, they are never forgotten. They are passionate about preservation; through donations, volunteers, and determination, they aim to bring life back into these historic structures.
