Lost Americana - State By State
Each state has its own unique story when it comes to its agricultural history, be it farming or ranching. And even though it you may not typically think of New Jersey, or Arizona when it comes to farming, each of the 50 states has some sort of agricultural production, as well as small towns and communities. Use the map below to get a brief overview, or click on the state and see more.
Mouse over each of the states. If I have traveled through it there will be a popup with a photo and excerpt about the state. Clicking on that state, or finding it in the drop down menu will take you to a separate page with more information, photos, and sometimes videos of that state.
Most states will include a collection of photos, a brief look at their overall agricultural industry and how rural populations have been effected by decline.
Most photos will have captions that include some information about the image and on occasion I will share some of my experiences & stories I’ve heard while traveling that state.
As I further develop the site each state should will have a section linking to blog posts & stories specifically about it.
