This blog documents what remains when man abandons his buildings, homes, schools, and factories. These decaying structures represent his impact on his world: where he lived, how he worked, and what he built. The blog also shows examples of where decay was averted or reversed with hard work and imagination.

2017 Revsit to the Secret Playground, Vicksburg
In February, I walked back through the brush to the Secret Playground off Wisconsin Avenue. The path was reasonably clear, but the playground area has a lot more brush than before. It looks like the City has not cleared or mowed since my original 2013 visit.
The merry-go-round still turns.
