Stumbling upon this while out of town was a nice surprise. I know a little bit about this particular lodge from newspaper archives but I’m going to keep it’s location to myself due to it’s shape and the area it’s in.

Photo of The Day: Templeton House
This old beauty has sit empty for a number of years. More recently, the property behind it was cut for timber. The house still remains, but it’s future is uncertain.
The Triangle House
This modest little home seems to have been given up on some time in the late 70’s or early 80’s. All of the magazines, newspapers, catalogues, and other ephemera that litters the floor of the place are from that time period.It almost seems like there might have been a fire or else a very inefficientContinue reading “The Triangle House”
The Preaching Arbor
I know some of the history of this place, but because of it’s location and the vulnerability of it, I’m choosing to keep most of it to myself.However, what I can tell you is that this is an old preaching arbor that was active at least as early as 1932, but I have also foundContinue reading “The Preaching Arbor”

My grandparents lived here briefly in the late 80’s, and I vaguely remember the inside of the house. I don’t know when the owner or owners finally gave up on it, but it was sometime after they paid for a new roof.

I found this in some of my old files. I think it’s Fort Fisher at Kure Beach.
This small family farm began as a log cabin sometime in the mid to late 1800’s and has been altered and added onto from those early days all the way into the mid to late 1990’s when it was properly abandoned and it’s former residents built a new house and moved away.The long, previously wellContinue reading “Petrichor Farm”
It always pays to notice your surroundings.On a trip through the back roads of Iredell county while dropping off a family member at a friends house, I happened to spot what I thought to be either a school or church hidden in brush and brambles. What became confusing was the interior of the building. DespiteContinue reading “Zion School”
