Dead Malls

Dead malls fascinate me. It’s incredible to see hubs of so much activity get abandoned and neglected as consumers move on to the next thing.

Here are a couple of photos of Union Station (better known as Shannon Mall) I took in March 2013. The mall was located in Union City, Georgia before being demolished in 2014 to make way for television & film production studios. I wish I’d taken more.

Wikipedia has a surprisingly great write-up of the mall’s history, the challenges it faced, and its ultimate demise.

The Dead Mall Series by YouTuber Dan Bell is great and explores interesting spaces around the country. Here are a few highlights:
