In March 1987, almost 24 years ago, pastor Jim Bakker resigned from Praise the Lord (PTL), a ministry he had built from the ground up that inspired a cable-TV show, a 501-room luxury hotel, an amusement park and an amphitheater. Andy McMillan’s series of photographs capture demolished parts of what used to be Bakker’s theme park, Heritage USA, as well as more recent suburban developments in the Regent Park neighborhood of Fort Mill, S.C. McMillan began photographing the community in 2006, when he returned to his nearby hometown after graduating from the Corcoran College of Art and Design.
