For over a decade, Matthew Christopher's Abandoned America website and book series has been chronicling the most hauntingly beautiful ruins in our midst. Visiting sites across the United States (and starting in 2019, across the globe), Abandoned America documents lost schools, factories, churches, asylums, homes, and more. By supporting Abandoned America, you'll help not only add more locations to this collection - you'll be supporting larger goals too, like a website redesign, historical information, interviews with people involved with these locations, more video content including video chats, and who knows, maybe even a podcast. As a Patron, you'll get access to exclusive images and galleries before they're released, discounts and advance notice about workshops and merchandise, a Patron-only news feed and newsletter, entered in monthly drawings for prints/books, and more.
