Abandoned places have a way of sending chills up your spine. From empty prison cells to mysterious nuclear laboratories, the US is full of fascinating, slightly unnerving places whose empty halls echo with the stories of past occupants. Keep reading to discover the eeriest abandoned place in every state. ALABAMA: Prattville Prattville is named for Daniel Pratt, who purchased the land in the 1830s to build a cotton gin factory. Once that became a success, he established other factories to build wagons, blinds, doors, and tins, as well as a flour mill.
