Abandoned Houses

I recall earlier this year my 10 year old daughter Regan and me driving up to an abandoned house a couple of miles from ours and being curious about what was inside.  We went around to the back door and it was partially ajar.   We thought what the heck, we'll just peek inside.  It was a bit scary and pretty icky.  Old, dirty blankets piled up everywhere.  Papers from a drawer spread all over the place.  Dirty clothes in one corner.  Not old ones, just dirty ones.  We heard the back door creak a little bit and we immediately turned around really fast.  We were scared!  It was just the wind though.  We walked out of the house and all of a sudden 2 cars pulled up.  One with a woman and the other with 2 men.  They kindly asked us to leave since this was private property.  No problem.  We walked to our van a bit embarrassed and left.  This got me to thinking about other abandoned houses and I started looking for pics online.  Here's some:









I tried to pick a favorite but had a hard time.  I tend to like the smaller more homey looking ones.  Sort of like the 2 right above.  What's your favorite?

  8. #5 is Halcyon Hall in Millbrook, NY, built as a hotel, then used as a private girls school. It may have been demolished by now.

  10. I think of abandoned places very interesting because anything that sits that long in time have a lot of history. I'm an artist and Love to paint and draw these eerie homes.
