I am in the middle of preparing for an investigation of MOSS’s first abandoned property this weekend. Built in 1901, this property hasn’t seen official occupants since the early 1980s… well, other than the small animals that call it home now.
Walking through this home, you realize immediately that it has been forgotten. You also see obvious signs of abuse from God knows who doing God knows what. But, if you look hard enough… if you look past the smell… past the mysterious sounds of scratching, creaking, and dripping, you’ll see the beauty that once was. And maybe, just maybe, someone is still there appreciating it.
Obviously I can’t tell you much, but I’d like to share with you a picture of what this home reminds me of.
Yes… this is the house at the end of the Michael Jackson Thriller video. How would you like to spend an evening in THIS place without electricity?
Actually, the Thriller house really exists and has since been refurbished and looks pretty good. I’m not sure the location for our investigation has much of a chance for life again. It is, however, incredibly beautiful in its own way and is very interesting and mysterious.
I’ve been in the home already. There are definitely areas we’ll be staying away from for safety reasons. I also found out very quickly about the current occupants. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not too afraid of anything paranormal. What I AM very afraid of are crazy living people… and LITTLE CREATURES IN ABANDONED BUILDINGS!!! I’m already not sleeping well this week. Any helpful suggestions for a scaredy cat?
Anyone have any stories about abandoned spooky homes? Did you have one in your neighborhood? Have you investigated one? Please share.
