Join author and photographer, Amanda Bennett-Cole, on an exploration of abandoned locations in Northern Indiana. The Cario Skywatch Tower, the country’s first rural watchtower, is still standing a short distance from her former high school.
The Ground Observer Corps installed watchtowers during the Cold War as a line of defense to detect approaching enemy aircraft. Additionally, it would be impossible to discuss Northern Indiana without mentioning Gary, the remnants of what was once called the Magic City.
Through colorful photography and descriptive text, discover these forgotten locations and more in Abandoned Northern Indiana: Skeletons in the Forest.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S)
Amanda Bennett-Cole is based in Lafayette, Indiana, where she lives with her husband and rescue cats. She is currently finishing her Master’s in Forensic Psychology, so she no longer has to suffer working retail. She has loved horror and history since she was a toddler watching scary movies and Ken Burns documentaries with her mom, so to combine the two she began urban exploring with her best friend as soon as they could drive. Besides urban exploring and long drives to nowhere, she enjoys researching and making horrific vintage recipes, playing video games, tattoos, and changing her hair color bimonthly.
