Decay in rural North Carolina.

I've been watching this community for a long time. I live in Greenville, NC which is pretty much surrounded by rural areas with an abandoned place just around every corner. Until now, I never got a chance to do my own exploring, mainly because I couldn't find anyone brave (or interested) enough to go with me! However, over the past few weeks I've finally gone out a couple times. Most of these photos are from yesterday, with a few from a couple weeks ago.

I posted yesterday about my trip to Trona and this is part 2.. this set in particular is from a cluster of shacks and mobile homes my husband and I found at the end of a dirt road, set against the foot of a mountain. I'm wondering if it was some kind of religious compound.. two mobile homes had a makeshift adjoining hallway between them with 3 or 4 refrigerators outside of it while another nearby house had 4 more fridges lined up in the kitchen. They must've had alot of mouths to feed? I also found the Book of Mormon in one of the smaller shacks. I'm probably reaching in suggesting it was a religious compound and more than likely my imagination is running away with me (I'm a Big Love fan as well, lol) but who knows..
