These Houses use to reside near the now closed Franklin Mint. The Franklin Mint is known for it collection of die-cast cars, dolls, coin and rare hard to find items. They also manufactured a lot of die-cast cars and coins. It was founded in 1964 but has gone through a few different owners through time. In 2004, the mint closed this location and then went up for sale. It is said that a developer then bought the entire property and also bought out the half dozen houses in the woods that resided on the property. They were going to tear down everything and build stores and developments as it over 500+ acres. But this company ran out of funds and instead left everything the way it was. The houses left abandoned started to fall apart with nature starting to consume them. One house was burned down in 2010 by vandals. These houses are dated late 1800’s to early 1900’s. It ashamed that these beautiful houses had to be left this way. I tried to capture their cry for help look.
