    Default Cross Hollows, Oregon

    Cross Hollows is just down the hill from Shaniko Oregon, which is a Tourist Ghost Town. This town came across my radar by accident, I caught reference to it in a history book about the Dallas to Fort Boise Military Road. There are two buildings here, but ample evidence of habitation over the years. Piles of metal refuse are all over the place, and there are at least two if not four separate piles of boards that could all have been buildings at one point.

    This building is right on the Highway. It looks like it was used as a barn for a while.









    I was going to examine this building closer - but I heard the residents rattling in the debris. Luckily business took me elsewhere, but I was able to get a picture of it and the remains of one of the other buildings.




    Here is an example of the type of rubbish around the buildings.

    Good on ya, mate. Had never heard of this place until now thanks to you. And I believe this is another great example of getting pictures of these old towns b4 they vanish forever.

    Thank you!

    The funny part is that I've driven by it several times and never thought of it as more then a couple of abandoned buildings. Just goes to show you that a town can be anywhere!
