an old cabin still in use in carsonville n.b.
I was by this abandoned old place again and had enough time for a brief walk-around to capture more detail.
Cool to look at but clearly a mess now. I think I hear roofers sweating as they look at the pictures. :)

Now you know that house should have an episode in the TV show "Haunted"
I sure would like to know where this is located. It is a beautiful structure.
LOL. Indeed! The closer you get, the worse things look. Inside I am thinking it might be asbestos and mold city.
You walk up to it thinking there should be a dirge playing on a pipe organ inside and/or that Morticia Addams should walk out the door.
Google "West Brookfield MA" and then find the intersection of Rt9 (West Main St.) and Cottage Street. The house is the 5th one on the north side of Rt9 just west of Cottage/Main intersection - on the right hand side of the street going west on Main past the intersection. In Google street view it isn't yet abandoned. I have yet to see anything quite like it. Perhaps some other inmates have (would love to see pics thereof).
Rebuilt, but basically old.

While the "Plywood Palace Tavern" may not be an artistic vintage structure, it does on occasion open, with $1 can beer and the option of the outback fenceline and bush as the restroom facility !
1763: Old for the U.S.
Ran across this abandoned place while riding thru the woods this afternoon. I am guessing it was built in the late 1700s or early 1800s from the style. Despite the fact that the place had electricity at one time, there was no driveway from the road up to the house.
Creepy. I dare ya to spend the night in it!
Interesting, a house from that period not having a porch.
sad to see no life in it. make you wonder about the stories it holds.
Actually, that one wasn't nearly as creepy as this one, which did have someone living in it - along with lots of large, dead plants in the windows.
Many, if not most early, colonial, New England homes did not have porches.
Yes, if the walls could only talk. Sometimes you can get information from the local historical society, where one exists. Another source of information is the American Antiquarian Society. Then there's always local folklore. Fun is stopping at out-of-the-way places and chatting up the locals about old abandoned places and their stories. Some of our best rides got started by talking to locals in little places like this (i.e., where the locals go):
Someone cared enough to take care of this place.
They even have the cup hanging on the pump
Even the outhouse is standing
