"Abandoned photography captures the beauty in urban ruins left behind, giving the viewer an exhilirating look at our past. With over 200 years of history, there is no shortage of fascinating abandoned places across Alabama. In Abandoned Alabama: Exploring the Heart of Dixie, photographer and historian Leland Kent showcases eleven of his favorite abandoned locations from across the state. Among the locations are several forgotten historic homes, plus a one-of-a-kind mid-century masterpiece built by a famous architect. Discover the incredible history behind one of Alabama's oldest and most historic abandoned sites, Searcy Hospital, which has been closed since 2012. Each chapter gives a detailed narrative about these breathtaking places accompanied by stunning imagery." -- From publisher's description.
