This was another location that I had heard about through a fellow explorer. It was fairly well concealed behind a fairly thick growth of trees and overgrown driveway.

When I pulled up to the house, one of the first things I noticed was the way the vines had begun overgrowing the house. That aside, the number of little outbuildings on the property was surprising as well. Though a fallen tree had apparently brought about the demise of a couple of these, it appeared as though whoever had once lived there kept animals of some kind, perhaps chickens.

A pathway leads away from the house, marked by two tightly planted rows of ever-green trees. Following the path to the end brought me to another outbuilding of a log-cabin type construction that also appeared to have been used to keep livestock.

The house itself may have once been separated into two apartments. I noticed that part of the upstairs had a door prepared for a padlock on the outside, and a privacy chain on the inside.

The floor just before entering the kitchen is partially collapsed and inside the kitchen is soggy and ready to go soon. Tread carefully if you happen to go there, keeping close to the right as this is where there is most support.
