Threw The Baby Out With the Bath Water

•April 2, 2014 • 2 Comments

This was our second explore on Sunday (I apparently have difficulty with chronological order)… It was full of furniture, clothes and many baby items… Clothes, furniture, car seat, baby photos… I wonder what happened to the baby? Why did the family leave so much of their stuff? The drawers still had clothes in them.
I guess I’ll never know.

The Buzzard’s Roost

•April 2, 2014 • 2 Comments

Our third explore on Sunday, PB noticed it as we were randomly driving. We turned around and discovered an ancient schoolhouse perched high on a hill behind 2 houses.
We pulled in the driveway and I went to the first house, knocked and waited… no one answered. We then climbed the steps to the second house, knocked and waited, after a few minutes we heard “Hold on a minute!” shouted from inside the house. After a few more minutes a little old man came to the door, dressed in a bathrobe.
We asked about the schoolhouse and if we could photograph it.
He agreed, telling us that the schoolhouse was built in 1893 and for us to watch the buzzards because they roost up that “and you never know what they might do.”
Fortunately, they flew away, because I’m pretty sure that a confrontation with a buzzard would kill me dead, right on the spot!

The Crooked House

•March 24, 2014 • Leave a Comment
There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;
He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
** As I was getting back in the car after touring this house, a pickup drove by really slowly eyeballin’ me. Since I was alone, I decided not to check out another abandonment that was nearby …

The House of Vintage Refrigerators

•March 24, 2014 • 6 Comments

There were 5 old timey refrigerators in this house; one was even UPSTAIRS!!

The second floor in this house was one of the darkest places I’ve ever been in, the windows were covered over with tin.  I was a little apprehensive about it, since I was by myself… but I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t go, so I went!!!

I love how these vines were beautifully consuming the house.

So, the most glorious explore last`1 Saturday was this little house.
I spotted it as were driving home, BLH had declared it time to head south after the car got stuck and he had to push… I didn’t complain, he wasn’t wrong.
But, once the house was in my sights, Cincinnati would have to wait.
The house was wonderful!! There were antiques that had once been fantastic, now they were sad and deteriorating in the gloom of that little house.
After we had explored the interior of the house, we were wandering around the outside, when a truck pulled up.  “We’re busted” I said.
A guy in a cammo shirt exited the truck and began to walk toward us “Can I help you with something?”
I began to walk in his direction as I held the camera out “I was just taking photos, I LOVE old houses.”
“Oh, well be careful” he said.
“How long since anyone has lived here” I asked.
“Probably 15 years.”  I think it was longer, there wasn’t a bathroom.
“This is a Sears and Roebuck house, they brought it in on a train car and set it up” he told us.
I searched for the Sears houseplan for that house, was only able to find one that was similar, our house was turned about 80 degrees and lacked a bathroom.`2`3`4`5`6`7`8`9`10`11`12`13`14 `15`15 `16`14
