The Back-Roads of Pennsylvania

I have been inside or around literally thousands of abandoned structures over the last couple years. This was the only one that ever sincerely gave me the creeps.

Stage Center or Mummers Theater (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) 

ADDRESS: 400 W Sheridan Ave, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, OK 73102

COORDINATES: 

Stage Center, originally known as Mummers Theater, was designed by John Johansen, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and a member of the legendary “Harvard Five” (which also included Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, Philip Johnson and Eliot Noyes). He was hired not by the Mummers Theater, which was to be the tenant of the Oklahoma City venue, but by the Ford Foundation, which agreed to provide a $2 million grant for a modern downtown home for what was then a 22-year-old theater company. 

The theater opened in 1970 to international acclaim for the design, but inadequate funding for operations and a less than enthusiastic response by locals led to the demise of Mummers just a year after the theater opened. The building has had a series of tenants since, was closed in the late 1990s, and closed again for good after it was flooded in 2010.

**Since its final abandonment, this building has sadly been demolished.** 

Perfect Swing Family Fun Center (Norman, Oklahoma) 

ADDRESS: 2159 Ann Branden Blvd, Norman, OK 73071

COORDINATES: 35.185668, -97.413106

The Perfect Swing Family Fun Center was closed in 2010 due to Tornado damage to the area. This site featured rotating swings, a mini golf course, go kart tracks, an arcade, and climbing area. 

Hissom Memorial Center (Sand Springs, Oklahoma)

ADDRESS: 13701 OK-51, Sand Springs, OK 74063

COORDINATES: 36.130561, -96.146121

The Hissom Memorial Center served as an institution for children diagnosed with mental disabilities requiring institutionalization. The center was built in the 1950s, but a lawsuit was filed against Hissom in the 1980s which led to its abandonment. 

Many people claim that the center is haunted, due to the fact some of the children died while in the care of the workers. 

Ouerbacker-Clement House (Louisville Kentucky) 

ADDRESS: 1633 W Jefferson St, Louisville, KY 40203

COORDINATES: 38.256426, -85.778130

This Romanesque-style mansion was built by Samuel Ouerbacker, a coffee merchant in the late 19th century. After Ouerbacker’s death, the mansion was turned into the offices of a tax business. Ironically, the business was taken over by the city because of unpaid taxes. Of course, according to legend, the mansion is haunted. While there is no record to prove this, urban legend has it that Ouerbacker killed locals in the mansion.
