abandoned mansions, including the great gatsby estate.

Forbes identified the nine creepiest abandoned mansions in the United States ranging from the 19th century to the more recently built. I was expecting to read ghost stories that would not make it easy to go to bed tonight but I got the complete opossite. As I began to see the photos of these mansions I couldn't help but to think of the families who once lived there and the lives built around these houses. If walls could speak, what would these mansion walls tell us of their past beloved dwellers? Are the rumored ghost stories true or are they nothing but silliness? Whatever it might be, I don't see "creepiness" in these abandoned mansions. I simply see that; abandonment and neglect. Their intimidating tall stature and over grown landscapes loudly scream POTENTIAL, so much of it. Just like when you find a beaten-up vintage treasure that looks to be damaged beyond repair and something inside of you tells you to take it home to give it lots of TLC (tender loving care) because it can still be restored, if not to its' natural state, at minimum something close to it to show off its' beauty and charm; this is how I feel about these "creepy" mansions. They can still be made to shine and serve just like they once did.


  1. if anyone knows where this is or any like it please let me know, would love to take photos inside and out.
