Sadly, Utterly Abandoned: The Haunted Green House

I went home for a visit back in July of this year and heard the sad tale of a house that played a big part in the lives of a lot of my family. It’s not a large house or one that’s architecturally noteworthy. It’s just a regular old house built in 1910 in my little hometown of Morristown, Indiana. We’ve always called it “the green house” because it was a deep pea green for probably 30-40 years or longer, but someone in the last 30 panted the old shingle siding white.

Sadly, Utterly Abandoned Stairwells

There are many gorgeous, elaborately decorated staircases in abandoned homes and buildings. One, in particular, caught my attention, but it doesn’t have a creative common license and can’t be used here. I can share the link though. Look for it after the last image. 🙂

Sadly, Utterly Abandoned Ships & Boats

The first two images are wholly fascinating to me. A Civil War romance tale could be easily woven around this lost and abandoned ship.

Further down, the image of the ship in the middle of what appears to be a desert is bizarre, yet scary. How did the vast Aral Sea just dry up? I don’t know, but it’s happened repeatedly throughout the many millenniums of this planet’s existence.  You can see that many of the vessels in this Sadly, Utterly Abandoned set have become beached by receding waters. Who knows when the tides will turn and all bodies of water that have slowly been ebbing away will be fully restored? No one on Earth can predict the future.
