l)()WN Family Farmhouse

Author jerm_IX - Last updated: 08.02.2013

A little over a week after our first visit, I returned to this farm with three other eager urban explorers. Less than five minutes after our arrival, the farmer, a descendant of the deceased l)()WN family members, pulled up in a tractor with a bail of hay. He was less than happy with our presence inside the home and voiced his displeasure vehemently and at length before asking us, or rather allowing us, to leave.

Furthermore, via online correspondence, another relative voiced his displeasure with the original version of this post.

With that said, out of respect, this post was removed from my blog for a one year period. Upon reposting it, the text used was modified so as not to appear in basic search engine queries of the family name. Also, exterior photos were excluded from the post. I will never share any specific location information, nor will I ever return to the property.

Definitely one of the best I’ve ever seen.

Sad place. Why was everything left there, espescially the personal things from the kids? I don’t find no informations bout that one:
