NOTE: This photo gallery contains images which depict vandalism on private property, as well as crude and vulgar messages and imagery. Sensitive readers and young viewers are asked to not view the following contents.
Most recently pitched and sold as a secure center for data storage, the Carter County property in the Lawton community near Olive Hill commonly known as “the mushroom mines” has fallen into a state of neglect, with burn piles and garbage abundant and graffiti painted upon the still-standing walls of the incomplete structures on site.
Many of the images are arguably quite beautiful, and others witty, although the majority have less to offer.
|Burnt furniture and tires are abundant at the former Global DataCorp site for a proposed secured data storage facility.|
