    Australian scPrepHole here. Me and my family came across the remains of old early settler buildings when we crossed the Nullarbor a few years ago. My Father also found an ancient Native American axehead when we lived in Texas.

    I’ve got a couple pics from a few days ago of an old mining related building in WV. Probably 60-70 years old if anyone wants to see it I can grab it off my hard drive after work.

        It may be hard to see here but I think this building has been rebuilt at least once due to the cinder blocks at the left of the chimney. I’ll upload 2 more momentarily

        Maybe repaired is a better description than rebuilt for that block wall. The chimney from the first picture is in the top right half of this photo from the opposite side

        Last clear-ish photo I have of that structure. I find old house foundations and similar things like these quite often while out and about. I’m pretty sure this is coal mine related though, an abandoned mine entrance and spoil pile are located just uphill of this structure. Probably an office or short gauge rail loading station would be my guesses.

    I can find pictures from the hike but not of the thing. There was a prohibition era still on a trail next to a creek. Thing was massive, probably close to 1000 gallons. I can't imagine how they got it out there back in the day through the backwoods.

    Trail is firery gizzard in Tennessee.

    Yeah. Ancient Native ruins and petroglyphs, ruined settler houses, abandoned gold and uranium mines. There's a 1940s uranium mine about 1/2 mile from my house. Barely anything left above ground.

    The old Forney Creek CCC fireplace at campsite 71 in GSMNP. Not exactly a secret or forgotten place, but still pretty cool. It was built in the 30’s and abandoned before WW2.

      Very cool. I assume the place burned down, leaving this behind?

        Maybe. It was a Civilian Conservation Corps camp from 1933 until the CCC was disbanded in 1942. I don’t see why it would have been disassembled, but I do t know the history of it. It’s campsite 71, which may be called Forney Creek, Forney Trail, or maybe CCC. It’s Great Smokey Mountain National Park, so there’s tons of info out there.

    my Olde New England town is full of roons. old foundations and root cellars in the woods, stone ruins of a colonial-era Quaker village, and just lots of random shit.

    google streetview related, this chimney is from a mill built pre-civil war (the mill burned down over 100 years ago) and it's just hanging out in someone's back yard.

    as for things we've found, mostly just old stone foundations in the middle of the woods that tell of the oldest history in town (starting ~1700)

    100+ year old abandoned buildings and ruins in the countryside are very common in my country so yes. Some of the coolest things that can be found in forests are very large and old lime kilns built out of stone, sometimes only a crater remains. Photo not OC.

    My ancestors built most of their stuff out of wood, so anything super old has long rotted away. I do sometime come over old farm builds thought which are probably 100+ years old., and there's also the occasional bunker and emplacement from the war

    >tfw live in a state with high population density where every abandoned place is immediately torn down to create more section 8 housing for undesirables
    They literally turned the abandoned quarries near me into HOA condos where non-residents aren't allowed. And we had a bunch of important historic buildings that got bulldozed down literally right before the NRHP was formed to protect them.

    Excluding well-known tourist attractions (several megaliths in my area), only the outer wall of a former medieval hermitage that was abandoned during the French Revolution.
    No pics.

    However, my area is laden with WW2 defensive works. Coastal bunkers, remains of autocannons on hilltops, walled foxholes near roads for defence/ambushes...

    Discarded boilers and steam gear from near Taos to Isle Royale and dredgers in AK and ghost towns. Arrowheads aplenty, beads.Maternal gramps had us out to an abandoned old town dump when growing up. We'd excavate all sorts of old buttoms, bottles, heirlooms, toys and the like. Sold them and made a small fortune.

    kek, my village church is 1000 yo, at least part of it.You have no idea of how many random ruins we have that are a century old.
    There are some old celtic fortifications pretty close to my village, we have so much that authorities don't even bother checking them, just do not touch them.
    And we are in middle of nowhere
    I am not trying to make fun Op, but we are surrounded by our ancestors history, my house is older than a century, and is not even considered ancient

    Yeah, in the Amazon when I was in the army wrangling morons and vaccinating lazy natives, nothing but snakes, spiders and poisonous frogs inside.
    God I hated that place, I, for once, agree with the cattle and onions farmers on bulldozing that humid hellhole to nothing.

        It was the military, you don't have a say on anything, specially when you're a 2Lt out of the Academy. Everybody hated there. Everyday is 35°C 100% humidity with pouring rain in specific times, ask some old boomer about Vietnam, it's basically the same.

    I live in Scotland so, yes.
    I come across stuff everytime i go out.
    I can look out my window and see buildings that are 400 years old.
    I can go walking in the local hills and see iron age burial cairns, neolithic stone circles and even older cup and ring marks.
    There are iron age hill forts everywhere. On nearly ever hill.
    It's completely normal.
