Whitkow Saskatchewan still has at least one resident, the owner of the single hotel/bar. Seems every town still has a bar and hotel and most are always for sale. The one resident is surrounded by many abandoned houses, businesses, elevator and hall (collapsed). Most buildings are very overgrown and there is clear evidence that many have been demolished over the years. There are of course still 2 churches and one is in quite good condition despite a leaking dome. (update: one church is now gone due to unrepairable dome) A once very Ukrainian community, this town has not stood the test of time.
The definition of "abandoned"
1. having been deserted or cast off.
Similar: deserted, forsaken, cast aside/off, stranded, rejected, dumped, ditched, unused, disused, neglected, idle, unoccupied, uninhabited
2. unrestrained; uninhibited.
I have been exploring abandoned buildings all over Saskatchewan and beyond since 2007.
