I stumbled on this house a few years ago right after I got my first DSLR. When I was walking around outside a passerby asked me if I saw a little girl in the window as everybody says they see a ghost there. Whatever. Went in and took a bunch of pics (quality isn't that great as I didn't know what I was doing, hadn't discovered the RAW format yet, and had my settings a bit off) and forgot all about it...until a year or so later I saw an article that it had burnt down about a month after I was there and read the story. Obviously saw the name on the wall, but having grown up a few hours away I hadn't heard the local legend of the crimes and the location.
Depending on where you read Nathanial White either lived here, buried 2 of the victims in the house, or both. Some say he lived here and the bodies were discovered in a field a bit behind the house, others say this place was already abandoned and he hid 2 bodies there. Not sure exactly which is true, but you could see the house from a major highway so I stopped to take a few quick pics but was a bit spooked by the passerby. Not because of the ghost rumor, but rather being reported to be snooping around.
Although I knew Villa Anna L. has been destroyed over the last years I definately had to visit the location as it is the origin of my interest in lost places and photography in general. So thanks Anna L. You are the reason of many trips into fascinating places and journeys back in time all over Europe (at least southern Europe and Germany).

This small family crypt was built by a bavarian count in the middle of the 19th century. Burried are his wife and their son who died at the age of 17.
Unfortunately vandalism stops at nothing. 99% of graffities in LPs are crap. In this particular case the creator outed himself to be 100% idiot! 😖😂
