About Forgotten Southeast

Forgotten Southeast is dedicated to preserving the past of once great places throughout the southeastern United States. What started as a single interest has now turned into a collection of some of the most famous landmarks in the southeast. Here you will find information on former towns, hotels, hospitals, schools, industrial sites, and much more, located in various cities and towns across the United States.

Most of these sites are in their last days. The goal at Forgotten Southeast is to bring recognition to these locations in hopes that these buildings might be saved and preserving the past for the ones that no longer and will no longer exist.

You will find historical documents and photos along with photos of current conditions in each article. Our goal is to help preserve these sites through extensive documentation, so they may be available for current and future generations. Some articles contain personal interviews with people who once were or still are familiar with these locations.

Currently, the Forgotten Southeast team consists of the founder, Jon Stone, a noted severe weather photographer and current student at The University of Oklahoma.
