Strange abandoned places around the world

Aniva Rock Lighthouse, Sakhalinskaya Oblast, Russia

This land originally sought after by both the Japanese and Russians is now controlled by Russia and has always been uninhabited.

Orpheum Auditorium, New Bedford, Massachusetts

This amazing building was opened the day the Titanic sunk in 1912.

The Orpheum Theater opened in 1912 with soaring ceilings built in the Beaux-Arts architectural style.

The massive space included a club, theater, a ballroom, a shooting range, a gymnasium, and retail space, according to After the Final Curtain. The theater was home to opera, theatrical, and vaudeville performances.

It closed for the first time in 1958, and was sold to various buyers over the years. Today, it remains abandoned and empty.

The Orpheum Rising Project Helpers aim to revitalize the building and restore it one day to its former glory


Michigan Central Station, Detroit, Michigan

Built in 1912 to 1913, the Central station served as the passenger rail depot for Detroit and was once the tallest train station in the world.
