Edgewater Mall

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA(Manitowoc, WI) Not quite abandoned, there are still a few stores hanging in at this mall, which sits across the street from the totally abandoned Mid-Cities Mall. Weeds are starting to take over the parking lot. The trees to the right of the old Prange Way entrance look healthy and happy.

Abandoned Mid-Cities Mall — parking lot


(Manitowoc, WI) This mall, later renamed to Lakeview Centre, has been abandoned for years. Its sister mall next door, the Lakeshore Mall (formerly Edgewater Plaza), still has a few stores but seems to be looking at the same fate. I still think of them as “The Useless Mall,” and the “Totally Useless Mall,” named that way by my older brother back when they were populated.
