  1. This picture sort of reminds me of the house Stephen King wrote about in his book “Duma Key.”

  3. Thank you both for the comments. Originally I nearly missed this house – its on a busy road (though you wouldn’t think so), its really a place that’s stuck in time with new construction all around it.

  4. Oh wow!! Now, I don’t see creepy when I look at this house…I think of all the history within it’s walls. I imagine it in it’s newness, filled with the love of a family who called it home. Great photo!

  6. It’s interesting to think what that house was like 100 years ago… who lived there… what the area was like… and what happened that made this house become empty for what seems to be decades…

    Being an Illinois Hoosier, the building looked Hoosier to me (the Deep South is there but so is essentially rural Americana in general?)
