    There is something about abandoned houses

    that just tugs at my heart.  In the country there are so many of these houses, where time stands still.  I cannot tell you how many times I have driven down a long road and come upon an abandoned home, and stop the car to get out and just sit a few moments and look at...

    Creepy Hospital

    There was an old hospital that was at the end of the street I used to live on. It was quite a bit out the road, behind huge trees. It wasn't a massive building; it was more like a mansion house in appearance. It had been abandoned for many years, and it used to be a sort of home...

    Great Fun

    I live in eastern NC and the landscape is littered with abandoned  houses. Some of them so far back in the wood you have to pump the sunlight in, to borrow an expression. Even though most of them are empty, they still carry some imprint of the people who lived there...

    The Other House Down the Road

    Ok, so now that I have a little more time, I thought I would tell you about the OTHER house my cousin Mikey and I visited during the summer of 2001.. Located just across the street from the house I wrote about previously, we didn't really even know if it was abandoned, until we...

    The House Down the Road

    So i live in this small town in Michigan, several miles outside of any nearest town. The house I'm referring to is actually about 3/4 of a mile down the road from where I live. Several years ago (I'd say late 2000, early 2001), my cousin Mikey and I were headed to one of his...

    The Old Motel

    My great-grandmother used to run a motel on Route 66.  She built and ran the place in the heyday of the 1940s, but continued to live there after the auto business disappeared.  I remember visiting her as a child, just before she moved into a rest home.  It was...

    Abandoned Houses - Mysterious History

    I've always been fascinated with old houses, especially anything predating the 1920s. I have a real mania about getting inside abandoned houses and poking around. It's fascinating to me. I never take anything and I never damage or deface anything, just silently walk through and...

    I Noticed The Avatar Picture...

    The first thing I saw when I noticed this group was the avatar picture-The Mudhouse Mansion in Lancaster, Ohio. I have always wanted to go there, but its a fat chance that will ever happen. The Mudhouse Mansion is been known to be haunted. Orbs and other figures have been...

    Sometimes You Just Might Be Surprised.

    I have been through some old abandoned houses and have found some nice things. Although since I do have respect for the dead I will ask if it's all right if I take it. Yes I believe in ghosts and yes I will ask out loud even if I'm the only one you can see. I want to see if some...

    Beautiful Decay

    Abandoned houses, hospitals, schools, industrial buildings... they're all hallowed ground to me.  Everything from the recently vacated to the ruined and crumbling.  If I can get inside and explore, all the better, but I'll be content with just admiring from the outside...

    My Mom Got Me Into It

    When I was a little girl my mom and aunt would take me with them exploring abandoned buildings. Mostly in Alaska. The one I remember the most is an old canning factory. I though it looked so pretty with the weeds overgrown on everything. And as I got older I used to do it with my...

    Yay For Creepy Places!

    I love exploring abandoned places, where humans once did mundane things. I love the aspect of decay, but also simultaneously the rebirth that occurs as the space is reclaimed by plants and animals. I also like model homes, houses under construction, ghost towns, abandoned...
