Welcome to

Vanished from Kalamazoo County



Life has been busy and I had to take a break.  I'm back and ready to post.  This site is dependant upon you the visitor.  I am looking for images AND information to add to the site.  Please note that the images/photos must be yours and not taken from other sites.  We need written permission to post items that you or I do not own; it's the law.  Please send your photos in to be added to the site.


We have been working hard on creating this new site.  Please note that this site is a work in progress and we are still transitioning from the previous site.  As time permits, we will be adding the pages that have not yet been setup and linked.  We welcome any information that you can provide; please visit our contribute page.



The original Vanished Kalamazoo website was created by Eric Lorey in 2002.   On December 31, 2011 Eric decided to close his website.   I began this website to continue on what Eric started.   With his approval we have included some of his original images on this new website and have added a few new ones.   I hope you enjoy our work and if you have any additional images or want to add a new Vanished item from Kalamazoo County, please go to our Contribute page.

Take a walk down Memory Lane through these sites that have vanished, but not forgotten by many of us.



Now lets take that walk as memories are made more clearly through pictures...
