The End of LeSourdsville Lake/Americana


The story of LeSourdsville Lake/Americana Amusement Park is what kicked off this website nearly eleven years ago. It was an early foray into my ongoing photographic documentation of abandoned and forgotten places. As a photographer and theme park veteran, I was fascinated by the place. Now, it's meeting its finality.

Here's one last look. From the ground, from the sky, and from the past.

An update to a sign from the book and a few new ones to add to the ongoing log that I still get interested in from time to time.
