Creepy and dilapidated structures of the eastern United States, Part 1

Last summer I got some good response to "Dilapidated structures of Southern Jersey," a collection of some of my (very amateur) travel photography. Since then, I have been gathering photos for another online presentation. In fact, it turns out that I have enough for a two-part entry.

So, if you enjoy these photos, come back tomorrow night at 7 p.m. EDT for another batch.

Big old house in Bennington, Vermont

(Note: This is the Walloomsac Inn. See this update.)

Abandoned Golden Rule department store in Belington, West Virginia

Seneca Motor Company garage,
across from Seneca Rocks, West Virginia

Service station in parts unknown, Virginia

See Part 2


  1. Neat photos! To me, the "big old house" in Bennington looks like an old hotel or inn.

    1. That is The Walloomsac Inn built in 1764.

  2. Or rooming house.

  3. Those are great! Seneca Rocks has been on my "to-do" list. I've actually been there before; but it was before I took a real interest in vintage stuff. I hope that great old motor company building is still there when I go!

    I love the signage on the Golden Rule store.

    This is my favorite old building from my travels

  4. I spray painted "free manson" on there. It's hilarious to see it on the internet
