I've spent the last few weeks on holiday in America as is tradition, so I've now got a bunch of stuff to show for it
I had always wanted to explore a funeral home, they don't come up too often as you can imagine. This one has been kicking around the scene for a while so it felt great to finally see one. The site is made up of three buildings - the funeral home itself and a pair of large garage structures one of which was used to park the hearses in and the other two storey one was used for coffin storage.
The town this is located in had two funeral homes, both owned by the same company and both closed - sadly the second one, although utterly stunning in a really stereotypical 'haunted house' kind of way (it literally couldn't look any more like a depiction of a funeral home you see in movies) is completely stripped back to bare walls and floors, and with large areas of roof tiles missing it was an empty deathtrap not worth plunging to your death in.
However the second one, although bashed and trashed is a belter. It closed in the early 1990s and has been left ever since and the decay has really taken hold, with two sides of the building suffering from some severe subsidence. The floor of the embalming room is very tender and the floor in the adjacent room which contains the body fridge is almost non-existent, with us having to traverse the wobbly plank of death laid across the collapse. The family who owned the business were obviously meticulous hoarders as upstairs where the living quarters were is stuffed full of all manner of funeral related paperwork and junk and very difficult to shoot! Thankfully there are only a few shitty kids graffiti tags evident which is surprising considering how long it's been closed.
I'm sure a few of the members on here will recognise this particular place!
Thanks for looking
I like car graveyards.
