A while back (is there a way to search within this group?) someone posted great shots of an abandoned motel in Milford, NE. As it turns out, I was driving past and decided to stop.
It has mostly been razed (you can see the ( Collapse )
visible from the interstate, in the far backrgound.)
Pretty soon the owner came out. He didn't have a shotgun or look too insane, so I put my window down and spoke to him rather than take off*.
I told him how I had heard of his place on the internet. He got mad and said, "No place is abandoned -- even if no one lives there, someone in the world owns everything. That's just an excuse for people to come around where they shouldn't."
Now I recall the person who photographed Milford had a completely different experience, that there were several relatives who were very nice and let them in to look around.
He said he had a lot of trouble keeping people out.
*It turns out there was only one way out. Although it appeared to be a circular drive leading to a large parking lot filled with all kinds of crazy metal and material, everything was blocked off.
If someone would post the original link as a comment, I'd appreciate it.
