Beautiful Abandoned 1930s Mansion - Inside Is Amazing! Plus Guest House

  • Published on Jan 11, 2019
  • In part two of my road trip we check out this amazing abandoned stone mansion. Built in the 1930s, this place is full of suprises inside. Its been empty for the last 5-10yrs and may be getting demolished according to local rumors. So come along as we take one last look inside this beautiful home. As a bonus, we check out a guest house and corn crib on the property. Enjoy
    Please Note: Exploring Abandoned locations can be dangerous. I don't condone or encourage anyone to enter an Abandoned structure. Not only is safety a concern, but often times its illegal and when possible, i seek out permission. I simply go to document its history before it's gone and leave things the way I find them. I assume all the risks & responsibility in doing so. Please don't attempt to do this on your own.

    Who owns this house now...and why haven't they restored it so it will not die????

    I looks like someone made it there way to steal all of the fixtures it’s pretty obvious no hardware on the tub yes I’m surprised that it was still there but they are very very heavy it’s a shame that the house was violated in that way

    If I was super rich I'd LOVE to save this gorgeous home. It always makes me sad to see beautiful homes abandoned and rotting away. It would make quite the abode for a crazy Pagan artist like me. That outdoor fireplace would make an awesome place to have drum circles. 😁

    Was there a master bedroom? I didn't hear you mention one. How many bedrooms were there?

      Im not sure which one was the master. There's 5 or 6 bedrooms.

    Just a simple sweep would’ve made the house look 10 times better, really nice place, hope the next owner leaves the house like it is and just makes minimal changes where needed.

    The house alone is amazing in aesthetic and architectural soundness.
    Would love to have it for my own.
    I pray that the person who owns the property renovates it for history sake.
    I'm not sure if it was said in the video but what City and State is it located?

    Hi from Norway. I must say, this was a beautiful house, they don't make them like this any more, i hate to see old house like this be neglected or even destroyed. I love old houses and items. I live in an old house my self, but not that old.

    This is my ideal dream home. My mother and I joke about finding our Grey Gardens. Finding one of these gems would be perfect even with the cost to renovate it would be so worth it. I'm a new subscriber and will probably be watching your videos for the rest of the day. Be safe out there! And thank you for the great video.

    I just love that lilac color. You know, this house looks like it could be fixed up and would make a very nice home for the right person. So much of it looks like recent renovation. New appliances. I wonder what happened that made it necessary to move on? Maybe no job? A death? Serious illness?

    The house is beautiful, the guest house adorable, and the aqua bathroom fixtures were great. I used to have a kitchen with appliances that color. I hope they do save the house and guesthouse. Those alone on a couple of acres would be fantastic and the company could sell the farm acreage separate, should they wish.

    Really would be awesome to see the whole property restored to glory. If you had a way to get in touch with the developer to show all the support you created for the land with one video. Maybe suggest the refurbish of it and development of similar housing tracts around it. It really is sad to see such beautiful homes created by our ancestors rotting away. Modern homes have none of the life we see in these old treasures. Thank you jp!

    Americans always lament the fact that you do not have old houses. When you let them rot or even demolish of course there can't be any old houses. And I would rather live in a house like this than one of those McMansions.

  • Richard TheThird

    That is probably not a 1930s mansion. It's likely the last significant phase of construction was in the 1930s but parts of that building seem older. The basement servants quarters definitely dates from the 10's or 20's. That dated fire suppression system had a saltwater bulb probably predating 1915. The chemical CTC inside the red ones makes phosgene gas when exposed to air, which was was weaponized during WWI-- so fear that stuff.. The thickness of the walls around the windows, the wide floor planking, and the wainscot paneling in the Federal-looking part of the interior are possible clues. Full fireplaces upstairs connected to real chimneys also suggest the possibility that the central portion of the house or maybe one of the Wings is considerably older than the rest. This is probably a frankenhouse containing many eras of upgrades with a 200 year old heart.

    If a person could get their hands on this house, the way to redo it is you redo the kitchen and living room and a bedroom. As you live and make use of these rooms, you slowly pick away at the other rooms. It could be a couple decades of blood, sweat, tears, and love put into restoring this beauty. I just wish I had the money I can do all that stuff myself. Did you know that many of the mansions way back when would have entire wings of the house closed off for the winter so they didn't have to heat the whole house. My Great grandmother owned a mansion and I remember as a kid we would visit sometimes in the winter and I couldn't go into the rest of the house like in the summer time. And if the owners had small children in winter they all moved in together into 1 or 2 bedrooms.

    I would love to know the back story. Why does a owner let this happen? If it was full of things when first abandoned, did the family just walk off one day? I hoped by the end of the video that the guy would say he was buying it to rehab for his family.

    DEATHMETALDUDE 666 12 days ago

    Doubt that house is worth saving unless you have the money, the stuff you see looks like it might need a slap of paint but the electricity setup and water pipes are prob ancient, plus who knows what shape the the sewage cesspool is, that could be a nightmare, definitely also need more of a modern kitchen, plus it’s way to big for even a normal size family unless you have 6 kids with the in-laws, I don’t get why rich people wanted huge houses, could you imagine being in there at night by yourself???? F that

  • Ray Winger

    People just want to destroy everything that don't shine. It would probably be cheaper to renovate than to destroy it.
    That old home is built better than the New houses.
    I get ill when I see the old well built homes get torn down. What a waste of effort to level them.
    One day the banksters will regret their decisions regarding those magnificent homes.

  • Ray Winger
    Ray Winger 12 days ago

    Thanks so much for what you do. Showing these lost treasures of craftsmanship to all of us is a great thing. Doubt the developer will restore it as a home, maybe someone could suggest it would make a great community center for their clubhouse, even have rent it out to the surrounding community for events as well. Wish I could rescue it...regrets!

    If this house was in an area near us & I had a million dollars I would purchase the house & surrounding property. Then I would have all the windows replaced with like, but updated, windows. Then I would have the floors refinished as well as all the electrical systems upgraded if need be. From there, maybe knock out a few walls on the main floor to create a little bit more of an open concept. The cupboards I would just return them to as new condition. I would definitely have all of the radiant heaters either updated or removed completely & have an air conditioner system installed throughout the entire house during the insulation in the entire house updated.

    It's an amazing home. Unfortunately the amount of money to restore it I imagine is huge. Hopefully the developer will either see it's potential, or at least allow a salvage company to come in and harvest as much as possible. There sadly are a lot of these homes sitting around the country in predominately rural areas that don't have the real estate markets to support the sale of such a structure. I love older homes. Mine was built in 1930. They come with problems that not everyone wants to deal with. But what I'm really curious about is, why did it become abandoned in the first place?
