“abandoned!”

Adamana is a ghost town in Apache County in the northeast section of the U.S. state of Arizona. The town was settled in 1896 in what was then the Arizona Territory.Named after local sheep rancher Adam Hanna, it was established in 1896, and had a post office until 1969. It was a railroad stop and a ranching settlement, once known as the "Gateway to the Painted Desert." At its peak, Adamana had about 30 families, a post office, a school, and a store. When a gas plant was established in Adamana and the new Interstate 40 passed it by, the residents began to leave. The hotel burned down in 1965, destroying some irreplaceable treasures such as the hotel register, which was signed by such people as Theodore Roosevelt and a king of Spain. Today, all that remains in Adamana are three buildings and a mobile home.

This place was once a decent sized railroad stop and place for travelers to stop by-- it was even known as The Gateway to the Petrified Forest, but when I-40 passed it by, it couldn't keep up. A fire burned down the hotel that was once the crown jewel of the town. If you do visit, keep in mind that those 4 buildings are people's homes, so if you visit, be very respectful and don't trespass.
