Today I am showing to you some more stone ruins that I encountered a few months ago. As you can see from the pictures, not much is left from them. These houses were built in the 1700s. The first house that has not much left but the fireplace and a window sill was built in 1785 and was destroyed by a fire in 1974. An interesting fact about this house was that it had what they called a funeral door. If a household member died in their bed, the staircases were too narrow to get the casket out so they would take them out of the funeral door. Pretty neat information. The second house I could not find a date on but I am sure it was built in the 1700s as well. It is pretty neat seeing that the fireplaces are what hold up the longest it seems. These house are all within a mile of each other also right near the abandoned 1792 house I posted a few weeks ago. As always like, comment, share away. Enjoy and stay tuned for a short video clip of these two places.

Hello, My name is Steve and I am an Urban Explorer. My main urbex is usually abandoned houses but I will also find myself checking out abandoned schools, hospitals, prisons, and other different type of structures. I started doing this crazy hobby of urbex since Feb 2013 and really enjoy exploring locations with deep history. Fell free to leave me a message if you have any questions.
