America, for all its supposed wealth and prosperity, has many abandoned places. From natural disasters, to foreclosures, to budget cuts, to rebuilding; I've seen quite a few in my short life-time. All across this vast country people are homeless, when there are many buildings and places that could be "repurposed" to house them. This blog is all about the places I've lived and explored, over the past 50 years. It also involves other things of interest to me, which will become apparent as I continue along. Most places and events I can only remember and have no photographs of them. Currently, I'm active in exploring the current state I live in, Tennessee, when time permits me to do so. Follow along in my foot-steps as I clambour over and sometimes into the abandoned debris of our society...from junkyards to cellars to my own mind.

Anyway, as there was no number on the building, I wasn't sure of the address. But I can tell from the debris and condition of the place in general, that it's been abandoned for some time. The lot is pretty big and there are two other out-buildings (three if one counts the old dog-house), that surround the house proper. This post concentrates on most of the house, itself...I actually started with the garage but since I took the majority of the pics of the house, our tour will begin there. Below are shots of the back and side(s) of this old place. As you can see, it's been falling apart for awhile. But on close inspection (though I'm no engineer), the brick-work looks to be in great shape. Not so much the inside of the house...
...next up, we'll do a short exploration of the garage...see ya'll there...
