Hey everyone, I recently moved to johnstown with my girlfriend. I'm into photography, and love exploring, and just wanted to know if anyone knew of any good abandoned or suspectedly haunted places where I could explore and photograph, within maybe an hour and a half to 2 hours from johnstown. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

There are a few caves open to the public. Penn's Cave, Indian Caverns, and Lincoln Caverns are located in Central PA around State College.

Look in Youtube for "abandoned Hall's Tower." It's in Mechanicsburg, about 2 hours east of Johnstown. It's fenced and guarded so be careful.

The "ghost town trail," which is right in your back yard. See below.

Ghost Town Trail - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Austin (PA) Dam disaster site and the very interesting remains of the Bayless Pulp and Paper Company buildings just downstream. See below.

There are lots of blogs about this stuff. If you put in about 1,000 hours of research, you'll find all of them.

Sorry I can't help. I'm not familiar with that part of the state.

Re my post above about Hall's Tower, It appears that it's been torn down. So scratch that off your list.
