At the 1224 km marker north of Sault Ste Marie on Highway 17, there is a small community called Heyden, Ontario. The most notable abandoned building is Pruce’s Motor Inn, but a decade ago, parts of the building were destroyed by fire.
This place has seen better days, but at one time, it was a thriving business on this Highway. Unfortunately, there are signs that vagrants have taken refuge here with personal items throughout the building. In addition, the entire building is covered in graffiti. This fine art urban abandoned-themed photographic print features a view of the front facade of the 1970s-style motel and restaurant.
