Since joining the Abandoned Arkansas team in 2017, Ginger Beck has trudged through mud, tall grass, water, and woods to find and document forgotten and endangered locations in South Arkansas. While the shells of these places remain in steady decline as victims of harsh, hot summers and cold, wet winters, the memories that people in the small downs of the South have are as strong as ever. Schools, churches, hospitals, and homes have been left behind as communities move on around them. Join Ginger on a tour of spaces that hold so many memories while the Natural State slowly reclaims them back to nature.
