    Post Just saying hello and introducing myself to the group

    Hello all! My name is John and I travel all over the state of Illinois looking for the rare, obscure, abandoned and forgotten. I photograph these sites and document them on my webpage, Off the Beaten Path in Illinois. If anyone knows of some interesting places I might go visit and photograph I welcome your input. This is a Great site and I'll be perusing it for the next few days to glean spots to go visit.

    John, I know very little about Illinois, except Nauvoo. But did you know that our county, Cimarron County, OK, was populated by running advertisements in Illinois and elsewhere offering real estate in Cimarron County? There was a lot of misrepresentation, and several people went to jail. Unlike most of Oklahoma, the population in our county has been declining for decades, so there may be even more ghost towns soon.
