Abandoned: Call For Entries

Got a Tip for the Abandoned Team?

The Abandoned Building: The Peck Family dairy barns hold a secret. Built in the 1850s, the barns are already historic structures, but their interior isfull of a mass of vintage car parts -- and even entire vehicles going back the early 20th-century. These pieces are the heritage of an early car dealership that purchased the barns in the 1930s and filled them with decades worth of auto pieces and memorabilia. With the barns facing demolition and the land sold, this museum of automotive history faced destruction until it was saved at the last minute.
