The main goal of American Urbex is to mashup three categories of research material: rich visual media, geolocation, and information. This website began as a project for a Library Media Sciences course at UW-Whitewater. The site is operated by Ken Fager – grad student, Wisconsin licensed instructor, photographer and adventurer.
America has a rich tapestry of historical places throughout the nation. Some are pretty difficult to find, but most are hidden in plain sight. Every day people walk past them without bothering to ask questions. Why are they there? What function did they serve? Who were the people that dwelled here? Why did they leave? Beyond the main goal this website advocates the exploration of urbex locations in the interest of education, adventure, and preservation.
All legitimate requests can be sent to the administrator. American Urbex reserves the right not to divulge location information.
