Kirkaldy Power Station

Fort Henry Club (Wheeling, West Virginia)

ADDRESS: 1324 Chapline St, Wheeling, WV 26003

COORDINATES: 40.065992, -80.720775

Still in remarkably good shape, the Fort Henry Club was first built in the 1850s as the Howell Mansion. By the year 1890, the mansion was turned into a club for the wealthy of West Virginia to gather and socialize in. Some of the club’s famous guests have included Jimmy Stewart, President Herbert Hoover, Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, and Walter Pidgeon.

Membership slowly declined, however, and by the year 2011, the building was completely abandoned. The building is owned by people who plan to restore it, however, no efforts have been made. 

Hartsville Station Nuclear Power Plant (Hartsville, Tennessee) 

ADDRESS: There isn’t an actual address for this power plant, mainly because it spans over an area of 2000-acres. The main reactor as seen in the first photo is at the exact coordinates listed below. The whole plant is off Smith Way. 

COORDINATES: 36.350873,-86.083417

The Hartsville Station Nuclear Power Plant was built by the Tennessee Valley Authority to hold four General Electric boiling water reactors. Building stopped in the 1980s for this plant because the TVA did not accurately measure the power needs of the area. All four of the water reactors remain, each in a different stage of completion. 

Mount Tabor Baptist Church (Palatka, Florida)

ADDRESS: 913 Reid St, Palatka, FL 32177

Mount Tabor Baptist Church was formed during the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War, during the year 1869.
