Growing up in a rural area in the mountains, abandoned houses were everywhere. When the owner died, or moved, and no one bought it, it would just sit. The cost of tearing a house down didn’t make sense when there is plenty of land available. I was kind of surprised and delighted to find this gem, but my guess is that it won’t be this way for long.
If you look at the map, you’ll notice this house rests on the corner of Wilmington St. and Bledsoe Ave. The big highway left of it is also Wilmington St. How is it that there are two Wilmington Streets, right next to one another? It’s not a flaw in the map, I saw the street signs myself. Anyone know?
