Banneck National Park Part 2

This is what many of the buildings looked like inside so there is a lot of restoring to do in these old places.

Here you can see the walls how there is so many cracks in them

Lilli,
What an interesting tour. The restoration really would be quite an undertaking. Some of those bars (or what look like bars) seem to be in great shape...

These are great photos! I love going to places like that and exploring. It's like being transported to another time!

Great stuff, Lilli! That side view of the bar has a haunted feel. Wonderful.

I guess that if they restore the whole set it could be a very nice attraction and a living history lesson!

Nevada has a lot of cool ghost towns. Like Bodie and Aurora. I love it. Have a great WW. :)

That looks like an awesome place to investigate... we have a similar place like that here, sort of like a ghost town that they have restored and they are always neat to learn about the heritage of them from way back... great post!

Daniel J Santos said...

Very interesting and excellent images.

Chris said...

Very interesting!

Napaboaniya said...

After restorations, I'm sure the place will sparkle :)

Jim said...

I believe that this ghost town should be moved to a population center before it is restored. More people could visit it that way.

My grandfather and grandmother had a motel in Warrenton, Oregon, off old U.S. 1.
Their operation wasn't that profitable so they could buy an RV. Grandpa had to do bookkeeping at the lumber yard as well.

Happy WW/WT, you are welcome to come back next week.

I've never seen any pictures like this. As my sister (who loves antiques) would say, "I can see the potential!" For real! This is really cool!

Very interesting information and photos. Glad that they are restoring them.

RuneE said...

Interesting local history, but I can see that it needs quite an effort to keep them up.

JO-N said...

An interesting place to explore. Thank you for supporting my first WW.

Beautiful place! I can't wait to see what it will look like after restoration! Thanks for visiting mine

This place certainly as a beauty about it.. do you know if this was over here in England it would be trashed by now.. or simply burnt to the ground. I'm so glad to it still intact, even if it is in need of repairs.

Daryl E said...

As always wonderful involving photos! Daryl

JC said...

These are at least as neat as the hotel, maybe more. I hope they can keep the charm after renovation. Awesome shots!

AVCR8TEUR said...

This looks like a place I would love to visit. I had no idea such a place existed. Thanks for sharing your photos.

Meggie said...

Those building sure do need a whole lot of luvin'. I read about the assay building....very interesting!

Paulie said...

I hope they restore it. I love historical buildings restored. I wonder if that Howard was OO Howard who we have a house here at the Fort named after him because he lived there. lol

Bob said...

Great photos. I felt almost dizzy looking at some of those photos because of the angles. Makes me think about Lombard street in San Fran.
