abandoned rennaissance faire

A lot of people may already know about this or have seen it if you visit www.abandonedbutnotforgotten.com, but I just wanted to post this for everybody if you get near the Fredericksburg, VA area:

http://www.abandon...aissance_faire.htm

I went there when it was in operation some 9-10 years ago, but haven't seen it in its current state. I don't even know if it's still there. The property could've been sold and the structures razed to the ground for a new development for all I know, but it looks worth checking out.

Sounds like a cool place, but if you want it to stay that way I would take down the exact address

Dude that place looks awesome. I think I remember going there as kid...weird... Either way I'll drop people a line the next time I'm in Virginia, if anyone wants to check this out. I'm up there a few times a year.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

Pessimist by policy, optimist by temperament -- it is possible to be both. How? By never taking an unnecessary chance and by minimizing risks you can't avoid. This permits you to play out the game happily, untroubled by the certainty of the outcome. - Lazarus Long "Time Enough For Love"

Nice! I think the ship would have been a priority for me, just because. Thanks for sharing!

I'd be careful when at that site. Two of those pictures show some paint based marking training ammunition which is used by military and law enforcement for live fire training.

It is simunitions, and I wouldn't worry. They usually only go to those places once a year, at most once a quarter. You will notice them their before you ever set foot near the place.

I was just there no more than a week ago and the guys that live right next to it are the ones using the training ammo I dont know how they got it but its not the police that are shooting that place up its private property that is for sale theres no way the owner would let the police go back there and trash the place.

Depends if its sold buy a bank, or not. Police will routinely ask to use abandoned buildings, public or private. Especially multi building complexes, and that fair is the perfect training area. Besides simmunitions only really can break glass and the pain easily comes off with a wet spunge if you catch it in time. They also never seem to pick up that brass.

Most Simmunitions companies only sell to LE, and government agencies. The would have to be buying it from distributers and have special barrels to shoot it.

I doubt the owners are selling it as "a fully functional renfest, you just supply the wenches," they could care less about some spray paint and a few broken doors. The development rights are the same on the property no matter what.

This isn't boot camp and you are not a ninja. But you sure look like an idiot in that outfit.

Posted by andrea"you just supply the wenches,"

That, Andrea, is the hard part . . . . .

So is this place open for shooting? You seem to be coming and going with ease.

I agree with all of what you have said but the guys next door are using this place as a huge play ground once you go out there you can really see the amount of dammage that has been done. And for the price he is tryn to get for that place it might as well be fully functional.

Again, the price is for the land and probably has nothing to do with any structures on it.
