Seven Abandoned Buildings on Dort Hwy in Flint. What Were They?
There are quite a few abandoned buildings on Dort Highway in Flint, MI.
Businesses come and businesses go. That is just the sad nature of how the world works. Unfortunately, when a business closes down for good, the building that kept it ofter becomes abandoned and begins to fall apart.
That is the unfortunate reality of Dort Highway in Flint. For anyone that has driven along Dort Highway, you know that it does not take long before you see a graffiti-covered, abandoned building that once housed a thriving business.
The other day, I decided to stop at the Dort Mall to see what was actually still in there. It was once filled with businesses and antiques but has since slowly started to wither. However, as I researched the history of the Dort Mall, I learned a lot of cool facts about things that used to be in the mall, like a movie theater and a discotheque.
