The Amber House

Ontario : Ottawa
Location #4311

Location Owner:Moderate
Creation Date: 3/27/2012
Last Updated: 3/17/2015

Abandoned farmhouse, and multiple barns/sheds. The farmhouse was built in 1954, currently crown owned land/NCC, set to be demolished spring/summer 2012.

Found this location while riding the bus to a different location, made a note of it, and stopped by on the way back home. It was well worth my time. I was able to get some interior shots of the farmhouse and the barns, which made me really happy since it was a location I found all on my own :)

House is in poor condition, floors are sloped and creaky, sounding hollow in some spots; walls, doors, and pretty much everything else is smashed to hell...if you weigh over 190-200lbs, I wouldn't recommend this place unless you're very careful, I'm super skinny at 160lbs + 20lbs of gear, and I was worried about falling through the second floor into the basement. Watch out for broken glass, beer bottles, and rat poison everywhere.

The main barn is full of junk, but I didn't explore that too much. There is one small outer building with an old couch in it, but I didn't explore that building as the roof and floor had collapsed. Two smaller barns that contain lots of old junk, including an old radio, toys, bicycles, and even some rolls of old processed film/negatives.

Worth a look before it's demolished.

    This house has been torn down now (as of Feb 2013). I drive by every day when I go to work. All that is still there is the large barn and a portable toilet the workers used during demolition. The barn is in pretty rough shape as well,I'm sure that will be gone soon too.

    Did you check all the boards? It appeared that it was all boarded up when I went there, but there's a certain board that may just be leaning against the wall ;)
