Where Metal Goes to Rust

I first saw this house in the woods a few days before the end of my senior year of high school.

One of my friend took a group of us out into the woods behind his house to see it, we all tried and figured out why it was just left there....

This house has stuck in my mind ever since and 9 years later, I have decided to return to this location...it is obviously a lot rougher these days and seems to be a cemetery of all things metal...

I hope you enjoy..





I started my trek walking into the woods....the thorns were out with a vengeance, but I out smarted them with my long sleeve shirt..mwhaha.



There were lots of vines and things...



The closer I got to the house the more metal objects were found...




Someone was throwing back some whiskey



The house is pretty tall...


vines


No idea what this is or why it needs to be cleaned out...


Missing some siding






the porch was stacked with doors, old metal desks, and other pieces of metal




Desks


Peeling Paint


Paw Prints


Purex...must be very old because it comes in plastic bottles now..


Metal Door thing


I think they need a new fridge..


oven..




More vines


A shed


light fixtures


I really liked the different colors on this shed


Solvent


Another building behind the house...no idea what happened to it, but the walls are pretty non existant


More old desks piled in the back building


rusty shelves


This is actually one of the walls that fell down


Turning my attention back to the house...

Heading in...




A little bit of sun in a gloomy house


Cobwebs...lots and lots of cobwebs


Good to the Last Drop


There were a lot of shovels in the house



A collection of doors


Awesome door knobs




This is what all the walls looked like...the house was pretty much gutted


More doors


Another shovel...


The door to upstairs




The upstairs was much like the downstairs


leaning chimney


looking through




excrement!


back outside with more rusty metal


a collection of stoves and refrigerators


bike wheel


This tractor has seen better days..

After this i wandered back into the woods to avoid the thorns...
