Spurred by my first, uninformed visit to Kinloch over a year ago, this time I was able to tour the town with Bryce Robinson, who works in the town, giving me a much better look at this historic community.
In an attempt to add population to the city of Kinloch, many apartment buildings were built in the 1960’s and 70’s. Most of these buildings now are unfortunately abandoned; some were snatched up by the airport, such as these burned out hulls in the center of town, while some seem to have been abandoned gradually.
I like these apartments; something about their 1980’s Post-Modern look reminds me of my childhood.
Reutilization of these properties could be a key to improving Kinloch’s future prospects.
