Exploring abandoned and forgotten locations

From ghost towns to asylums and everything in between.

Join us as we document the past through photography, video and drone footage. We visit abandoned buildings on the Canadian prairies and northern United States. From schoolhouses to institutions and everything in between. We focus on documenting sites through historical research, photography, videography and drone footage.

What types of things do we explore? We love to document everything abandoned, rural and historic. We always love large locations like abandoned hospitals, military bases and industrial sites but there are not many around these days.

Our focus for the last few years has been photographing, droning and doing video of grain elevators, rural churches, one-room schoolhouses and ghost towns. Most are abandoned, others are in a state of occassional use.


Churches of the prairies

Exploring abandoned, histororical and rural churches on the Canadian prairies.

It’s no secret that we love rural churches. Join us as we explore abandoned, history and active churches all across the Canadian prairies. Through photographs, video and drone footage we document the outside and sometimes the inside of these places of worship. Specializing in Ukrainian orthodox and Ukrainian catholic churches, we also document other rural churches including abandoned sites. Denominations include Roman Catholic, Lutheran, United, Anglican, Presbyterian, Orthodox, Jewish and more. This project was previously known as “prairie churches canada”.
