This arti­cle is part 1 of 4 in the series Abandoned Clark County

Several weeks ago at the library, I stum­bled upon a book called Abandoned Kentucky by Jay Farrell.  According to the author, “Abandoned struc­tures are places that open the imag­i­na­tion and invite inter­pre­ta­tion.  While often over­looked by passers-by, their skele­tal remains act as the per­fect sub­ject for the cam­era, qui­et­ly wait­ing to be cap­tured and shared.”

Farrell, a Nashville res­i­dent, focused his cam­era on south­ern and west­ern parts of Kentucky.  The need to seek aban­doned struc­tures in Clark County fair­ly hollered out at me.  So with Clare at the wheel and me behind the lens, we were off.  With so many tar­gets of oppor­tu­ni­ty, the results will have to be shared in a sequence of WinCity articles.

[Editor’s note: This image gallery dis­plays well on desk­top or lap­top com­put­ers and larg­er mobile devices. On phones, the expe­ri­ence will be degrad­ed; we apol­o­gize for this, but it’s sim­ply a lim­i­ta­tion of the gallery soft­ware we employ and the real­i­ties of dis­play­ing images with text.]
