Have you been to any of these abandoned places in Michigan?

For some reason, most of us are interested and drawn to abandoned places and structures when we see them. Maybe it is our imagination running wild about how it may have looked or maybe it is just plain interesting. Whatever the case, I remember many times growing up when I would explore abandoned places.

As a kid, my friends and I would always seem to find ourselves in places that were abandoned. Whether it was the store at the end of the street or an old barn, we couldn't resist going in. Of course, back then when we were young, we had no idea what trespassing and breaking and entering really meant, so we would weasel into anywhere we could. I can remember multiple occasions when we would scale the side of a building to get onto the roof and explore. Looking back it was pretty dumb, but so much fun as a kid.
