Ghost Town

Ghost Town

The title of this photo has a double meaning. First of all, this is a deserted, adandoned, crumbly strip of three buildings. It looks like it could fall apart at any moment. Secondly, it's in the old business district of Adams, TN - the town made famous as the home of the Bell Witch.

It makes you wonder what the builders of such a place would have to think if they saw it today. If one more person threw a rock on the awning of the Robertson & Co. building, do you think it would fall in.

On the side of the building is the county's most famous graffit. "In Autumn Geronimo Weeps - No Pony With a Blanket" - Kerouac. That's too Beatnick for me. I have no idea what it means.

  1. I'll have to go there and look at Adam's, I'm not far from there at Ft Campbell. What is near here?

  2. Adams is a real small town. it's not all dried up like you see here. Other than the Bell Witch tour and a couple of restaurants, there isn't a whole lot around.
