USA A Tale of Two Houses, Sept '14

Recommended Posts

Those of you awesome enough to have me on Facebook will know the reason I've been absent from the forum for the best part of two months is I've been gallivanting around a sizeable portion of America taking in all sorts of many and varied things, both tourist and of course urbex...well I returned today!

My very first explores in the land of the free weren't what you'd call 'classy', I stayed with a good friend of mine in Maryland for the first few days and on an outing to try and find some cars abandoned in the woods (which ultimately proved fruitless as the land was cleared and a house built on it) we made note of a couple of abandoned houses spotted along the way. I was totally unprepared for an 'inside' urbex lacking both my tripod and torch but I couldn't refuse my first taste of urbex in America, however small. The first house was very dark, stripped and a bit ruined but the second find was much more interesting.

Over the next week or so hopefully I will get all 20 locations I explored up in some form or other ;)

The stereotypical 'haunted house' look...



There appeared to be a swimming pool in the back yard, somewhere!





The attic was the highlight, instantly reminding me of the 'hazard cell' at Deva Asylum.


After exhausting that house we retraced our route towards a house which on the face of it looked like it wouldn't be much cop at all due to the state of the outside, but I really liked it here, it was a little unexpected gem! What appeared to have happened is the upper floor had a renovation started, but then stopped and at some point after that pikeys got in and ripped all the pipes out leading to massive water damage through about half the house.
















More from the first one here and second one here. Loads more to come from my USA trip so keep your eyes peeled for some amazing locations I visited soon :)

      It's been a while since I've posted anything. I though I would share something really cool, this is the Kenosha Theater. I have a thing for old movie palaces and I could not pass this up especially since I live pretty close to it. It technically isn't abandoned since a man owns it, but he dosen't have the money to fix it so it sits in it's abandoed state. I will also add that he does give tours to anyone. That's all I have to say so enjoy the decay.

      I visited Salton City last year and it was one of the strangest, most haunting experiences I've had. It's not locked up- there's a tiny, tiny population still living there (!) but the majority is derelict, covered in graffiti and shows signs of being fled in a hurry (old cereal packets on shelves etc). It was a former luxury resort but was built on the side of a now-poisonous inland sea and is carpeted, creepily, with mummified dead fish.

      I've written the whole story on my website here: http://www.lifeoutthere.co.uk/2017/12/07/salton-sea-things-that-could-have-been/

      Here are some pictures!
