Sinking Farmhouse

As we travelled around the Ontario countryside this summer we discovered a few abandoned farm houses. I follow Ontario Abandoned Places on Facebook and have been fascinated by the properties they have explored. So when I came across this one I took the opportunity to take a look and shoot a few photos.

Out of respect for the rules of the Ontario Abandoned Places, I did not break in – (it was easily accessed), I did not remove anything – and I will not be revealing the location.

As I approached the farmhouse it was evident that the front part of the house had sunk into the ground by about 2 feet. I walked around to the side and was able to easily take a picture of the kitchen through the window. I then went around back and the door was open.

As I made my way through the chaos  I was careful to make sure the floors felt strong enough to hold me and not to touch anything!

The date on the wall calendar was 1983 and as you can see it was quite a mess but very interesting. After seeing the Christmas card I felt sad that all the memories in this abandoned home now seemed to be forgotten. Oh – and that giant syringe on the stovetop – it may be best forgotten what that may have been used for!!
