Some years back I saw The Andromeda Strain on TV and thought that the abandoned town was suitably creepy. Interesting to see that it was a real place and not just a set.

LOL - the whole Bend area is a real place, for sure!

Someone was expert at making rock walls. Too bad that the building is in a ghost town. I think it should be included in the historic register.

Interesting that the word verification for this post is outomb.
Most appropriate for a post on ghost towns if an extra 't' were added.

Funny, that kind of rock work always makes me think of Arizona.

Great stonework!

BTW: Andromeda Strain is my #1 favorite movie - the original version, that is.
