This Queen Anne-style house was built as a wedding present, but has been many things in its life. Most recently, it served as a natural history museum and visitor's center for the complex which has been built up around it, and the remaining exhibits are nicely offset by the encroaching natural decay. It now sits empty and forgotten, all but ignored by the visitors who walk by it every day in pursuit of more socially acceptable recreational activities. Normally, it's exposed location would make access difficult, but on this day the weather whipsawed between a light drizzle and heavy thunderstorms, rendering the area deserted.

Always nice when unexpected opportunities present themselves. Those preserved fish were pretty cool to see. Nice set.

Thanks guys! I held off on visiting this place for a long time because I didn't know if it would be worth it, but it turned out to have a lot of eye-opening stuff.

Ewwwww at the fish! Great shots! This is similar to a place I went to a couple of weeks back. Mannequins freak me the hell out! I think it maybe a real phobia. Nice shots!




It was dark, my heart was pounding, I just had to go in

LOL!... Vorhees-looking hockey mask on a female bust? Nice.
I'm digging how the preserved specimens are in regular-old mason jars. That screams homemade job, where someone had a genuine interest in supplementing the collection with their own locally captured critters. Love it!

Every object I saw in this place was obviously left there from when it was it was in use... except for that mask. I have to wonder how it ended up there.

It's funny you should mention the DIY nature of the specimen jars, because they weren't stored in a display case or a locker, or anywhere in the museum area. Oh no, they were out in a tiny shed in the back yard. I wouldn't have even known to look there if the door hadn't been wide open, so that the jars were visible.
