Stardust

Cat Boneyard

I've been watching this community for awhile. And this is my first post. However, before you click the link, it has some questionable content. No nudity, no swearing, however, it's something I've yet to see so far.

Awhile back, someone had posted picture of a greenhouse. While on my way to go take photographs I noticed this smaller building, abit back from the road and hidden by trees.

Greenhouse.

A few weeks ago, someone had posted a single picture of an abandoned green house I was pretty familiar with. It being about two hours north of me, on the lake, I hadn't a chance to go until the other day.

I'm not only fascinated by the rural or urban ruins themselves, I'm also interested in the story of -why- they're abandoned. Luckily I found what I wanted from someone I know in the area who works for the state, and his wife for the county. These 10 large green houses and the garage between them were all owned by one man. In them he had fruit, veggie's, all kinds of plants. It was a local favorite from what I understand. He died suddenly, and, leaving the place to his kids, they abruptly ran it into the ground. It's been sitting empty this entire time.

Cades Cove - an Abandoned Community

The ghostly peacefulness of Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is hard to describe... Visit in the off-season and it is a surreal experience!

Cades Cove was abandoned around the time of the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934 - but the buildings have been preserved pretty much as they were for visitors to see & explore.

For connoisseurs of derelict buildings, etc., the shear NUMBER of great old buildings to freely explore makes Cades Cove attractive. The lack of furnishings detracts somewhat, making the buildings seem a bit sterile compared to discovered treasures elsewhere...



There are quite a few barns lurking in the trees....
