I’d seen this old building many times when driving the back roads between Lancaster and Adelanto. In its last incarnation, the building had been a Hispanic devotional shop selling religious iconic pictures, candles and so forth, but it closed a little over 3 years ago.
The building was in remarkably good condition though exposure to the elements was starting to exact a toll. What was more surprising was the lack of graffiti. To a large extent the building was in remarkable condition.
Perhaps the Lady was watching over the place.
As we looked about, the back room told a somewhat different tale.
Blood red paint on the walls, blood stains on the floor.
