Eastern Pennsylvania, with its river valleys, mountains, and forests, is just as diverse historically as it is geographically. Hidden throughout the varied landscape are ghost towns, forgotten cemeteries, and other little-known historical places largely overlooked by most people.
Abandoned or Forgotten: Overlooked Corners of Eastern Pennsylvania is a collection of several of these sites found throughout the eastern half of the state, both on and off the beaten path. Explore the ruins of a company town made entirely of concrete.
Discover some little-known places and events from Pennsylvania's days in the American Revolution. Roam among over 100 bunkers from World War II. Visit the site of one of the largest mine disasters in American history.
In these pages, author and photographer Ryan Stowinsky takes the reader to these sites and several more. With dozens of photographs and directions to most locations, readers can discover the history that is hidden all around them.
