Built in the 1800s, this old massive farmhouse in Upstate New York sits vacant decaying everyday. A good bit of stuff was left in this place. Its not trashed like a lot of the places I been to also. From reports, its been vacant for about 6 years now. So here the story. Imagine the federal government knocking on your door saying you have 3 months to move out of your house, here is a check for the homes value, this house and land is now ours. Yes that is exactly what happened to this place in the 60s. You had no choice, you had to leave. All of this b/c of a project the government was trying to do that would affect the land this home was on. It wasnt just this house, many others in this area also, some still standing like this one, others demolished. This project 10 years later than was halted / cancelled due to money issues. These houses remained abandoned until a land service picked up the property with many abandoned houses / farms still on it. This home was rented out in the 1990s - 2000s but was then vacant starting around 2008-2009. It remains that way to this day. The life of this home is unknown. The only reason it still stands is the historical value.. Video to follow. As always, like, comment, share. Enjoy!

  1. What a GORGEOUS house!!! In the description you mentioned it had been rented out in the 1990’s-2000’s. Did the Government sell the property after the so-called project was abandoned? Who owns it now?

  2. Hi I was curious as to exactly where in New York you found the house?? I’d like to do some more research on it, my grandpa is a huge historian/researcher maybe she can find out more on it?

  3. On my pinterest page I have a few pictures of “abandoned places” or “old machines”, I feel they have an “alien spirit”, an “epic soul” to them, for lack of a better way to say it …
