*** DEMOLISHED September 2012 *** Here sat a gorgeous century-mansion condemned in February 2012. The conditions inside were absolutely divine (in terms of what WE love!): fully furnished & decay everywhere. One of the things I will remember as the most unique and strange were the black cobwebs that hung everywhere throughout the house. And then out of all the grime and decay, an upstairs room held a massive collection of mint condition Playboy magazines. They seemed so out of place in all the chaos that it reminded me of old photos of a town destroyed by a tornado with a church standing undamaged in the middle of all the wreckage. Maybe not the best comparison. ****from Oliverandcompany Feb 2017 *************** This Farm seems to have been left behind without them doing much packing up. There are walls that have fallen and holed, support beams crumbling, metal rusted. There is also a chicken coop that seems it was set on fire with the chickens still inside the coop as there are burn marks inside and a few decomposeing bodys. The stable on property is falling appart but the decay is simply beautiful. the store warehouse is filled with forgotten possesions. Inside on of the smaller rooms we learned there was a second level which you could climb into.

Motleykiwi The house is gone, the pictures from that 2014 gallery are from 2010 and earlier. There's still a couple out buildings left.

ground state Yes, I've been meaning to stop to see if there are interesting things inside of it. Even if it has been cleaned out, it would still be neat to have a look. The garage was so packed with stuff when I first visited, I could only walk ten feet into it.

canadavey I was here with MHInc about a year ago and the place was locked up. Looking at the pics from your outing we didn't miss much. Too much garbage around for my liking! I like the black cobwebs though... They give it a haunted house kind of appeal.
