‘Abandoned or Forgotten: Overlooked Corners of Eastern Pennsylvania’ is a collection describing several abandoned sites found throughout the eastern half of Pennsylvania, both on and off the beaten path. In his presentation, Ryan Stowinsky explores the ruins of a company town made entirely of concrete and discovers some little-known places and events from Pennsylvania’s days in the American Revolution. Stowinsky has been visiting little-known historical sites, ghost towns, and other oddities in Pennsylvania and several other states for nearly two decades. His writings and photographs have appeared in several books, newspapers, television shows, and websites.
