Kathleen Butler grew up in New Jersey and currently lives in Pennsylvania. She enjoyed wandering the woods of New Jersey as a teenager, always in awe of the beauty of nature. When she met her soon-to-be husband in the late 90s, they often took strolls through parks. One summer, they were strolling through the woods of a Pennsylvania park and they stumbled across two large foundations that nature had started to reclaim. Baffled that they were not demolished, Kathleen became intrigued by the history of these ruins. Since then, she has had a passion for finding more ruins in forests and learning their history. She has several published articles on websites and has her own website, ExploringNJandPA.com. Her photos are used in a few tourist publications, including Visit Pennsylvania.
