Bad House in Clinton

Is there such a thing as a bad house? My mate and I have talked about all of the abandoned locations we’ve seen. We theorize that there are two types of abandoned properties.

Does the house I found in Clinton share the phenomenon of negative taped loops? What repels both my mate and myself from this house? We don’t know, but I wanted to share both our impressions and pictures of the Clinton house so you can decide for yourself. What are your opinions on ‘bad houses’, and are they truly rare amongst all of the abandoned places we explore with such relish?

Abandoned Barn on SC Hwy 81

On 12/29 my mate and I stopped to view an abandoned barn on South Carolina Hwy 81 outside of Anderson. The property also revealed the ruins of a house and some odd ancillary buildings. This blog focuses on the barn. In the future I will post one more blog featuring the ancillary buildings.

All 129 pictures of the location are in this flickr set.

Abandoned Farm Ancillary Buildings on SC Hwy 81

On 12/29 my mate and I stopped to view an abandoned barn on South Carolina Hwy 81 outside of Anderson. We walked the property and found the ruins of a large two-story house, now burned to the ground with only the side chimneys prominent in the invading vegetation. This blog entry focuses on the ancillary buildings that were also found. They all had echoes of the past, with present day interlopers left to ponder the relics left behind. The Bottle House had dozens of cider type bottles under the collapsed structure. Did the people drink that much cider or was there another use? The open shed had something looked like a fire pit, but there were no ashes and the construction did not make sense. These mysteries are one of the things I like about exploring and documenting abandoned locations.
