The Refinery – 2016

The Refinery – 2016

There is an oil refinery just outside the city of Havana, it sits just across the harbour from the city centre and the smoke it produces can be seen from anywhere in the city.

Havana, Cuba.

Hi there.  My name is Cody Weber and I’ve been running Forgotten Iowa for a couple years now.  I’ve been to over 500 towns in Iowa and have photographed abandoned properties in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Colorado.  In that time span, this blog has been featured by VICE, The Des Moines Register, The Atlantic, among many others, and I’ve loved every single second that I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to photograph. 

Thing is, two years later, and we’re still a good 450 towns away from completing the initial prospect of this project.  I’ve covered all the eastern and central counties of Iowa, but those pesky ones out west continue to elude me. 

Want to see a more active version of this blog?  Want to help me continue and finish the project?  Then become a patron of mine simply by following the link below:

As of this writing, we are presently up to $50 a month from seventeen awesome people!  I appreciate all the support and love but simply lack the capital to finish this phase of the project without your help.

Thanks for your time and hopeful patronage.  Love you guys!

Bed Bugs – 2010

Bed Bugs – 2010

It was a sheer joy exploring this abandoned hotel with most of the rooms lined with metallic wallpaper from the 70s it was like stepping back in time.

These beds are slightly cleaner than the ones I posted yesterday from another abandoned hotel.

Isabel Bader – 2017

The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts is owned and operated by Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

These buildings began their life as Morton’s Brewery almost 200 years ago, some 70 years later Maple Leaf Milling Company bought the site and used it for grain storage.  It then had a short life serving as The Sydenham Military Hospital later being converted for use as the Military Regional Headquarters.  Then in 1975 the property was sold to the City of Kingston and became the J.K Tett Creativity Complex some years later the city sold the former stable building and Stella Buck building to Queen’s University and they became the Isabel Bader Centre.
