Abandoned Pennsylvania: Remains of the Keystone State provides readers a glimpse back to times left behind. A once-booming state, which played a central role in the American Revolution, is now home to countless abandonments, from the big cities lush in forgotten churches and schools with remarkable architecture to small rural coal mining towns trapped in time that hold the remnants of former homes, hospitals, jails, and mills. Look deep inside through the 141 color photographs of these crumbling beautiful structures and discover the beauty in the natural decay. Explore the magnificent remnants of a 110-room mansion that holds ties to the Titanic. Wander the tracks of an old rickety wooden roller coaster engulfed in foliage or an old silk mill that has colorful threads from end to end. Follow the journey and step inside Pennsylvania like you never knew and discover what lies behind closed doors. These once well-constructed, elegant structures will meet their demise and fall victim to mother nature and vandalism.

JENN BROWN, a self-taught hobby photographer and author of Abandoned New York: The Forgotten Beauties, continues her journey photographing the decaying remains of places outside of her hometown located on Long Island, NY. Growing up, Jenn was surrounded by a family of skilled trade workers, so it was only natural for her to fall in love with detailed craftsmanship and elegant architecture. Jenn has turned her thrill of adventure into much more than a hobby, but rather a passion. Combining travel and photography, she has overcome personal boundaries and now refers to her hobby as an "addiction to abandonments" and her purpose in life. Rather than seeing decay as a negative, she captures the true beauty and skeletons of a history that has been lost.
