Galloway, MO
If you go all the way south on Lone Pine here in Springfield, you'll run into a strange little area that was once actually an independent town. Galloway was once a popular stop on the old highway to Branson, and was home to at least a dozen gift shops. However, after the highway was relocated, people began to forget about the tiny village. Today, most of the shops have been turned into artist galleries, while others still remain unused.

I actually wanted to check the area out after seeing a neat-looking abandoned building, and to also see if I could get near the giant quarry near Glenstone. I really didn't do either, as the building was completely surrounded by a fence and barbed wire. and sneaking into an active quarry would be pretty stupid. Instead, I wandered around Galloway Creek, found some really bizarre stuff, and eventually got lost in the surrounding woods. I hauled my ass outta there after I heard something howl, heh. I plan to go back someday to see if any other buildings in the area are abandoned.
