Unnamed research facility

i would love to tell the story behind this place but doing so would reveal its location. its a nice find and although there is some graffiti its pretty untouched and I wanna keep it that way. Plus its highly visible and highly illegal. All ill say is that it used to be a farm and later became a research lab.

Abandoned PA Greenhouse

The farm is being leveled and being turned into townhouses. Someone went in with backhoes and big machines and leveled all the growth that had occurred inside. I couldn’t say how long this place had sat unused but it must’ve been a while judging from the density and height of the growth.

The Turkey Vulture Property

I dont know anything about this property. I was driving in PA and saw it and said “lemme check this out” There were 4 buildings and 2 were pretty well sealed up. the 3rd was wide open and the 4th was wholy unsuitable to enter for safety reasons. I call this the turkey vulture property because there was agigantic turkey vulture flying overhead as I pulled up and he justkept circling.

Abandoned farm in Phillipsburg

An explorer friend of mine messages me and says “Hey I found this great big farm! I didn’t have time to check it out because it was almost dark. Wanna go with me?” How could I resist? So I met up with him Friday and checked it out. It appears to have been abandoned for maybe 8-10 years or so. The place was pretty well cleaned out. We didn’t find the usual leavings, like mail and garbage and clothing. We found a few toys here and there, a little bit of junk amongst the weeds and bushes but very little else. There was no evidence of kids or squatters either. No beer cans, bottles or drug use. No graffiti. I like to find stuff left behind, sometimes you can learn a bit about the people or the place. Not here, but it was nice to not see a place ruined by vandals either.

It looked like your typical farm. there definitely were animals raised here, and there was a fairly large corn field that was fallow. Interestingly the corn was still growing in neat rows. Apparently the birds eats the corn cobs as they fall but enough kernels remain to seed new plants. The buildings are in rough shape but nothing that couldn’t be salvaged. The buildings were probably built in the 50’s. There was a garage/shed type building, one large main barn with some smaller wings built off to the side, as well as the two actual houses. The houses had a very weird layout, I suspect it was expanded at some point. Its the only way to explain the layout.

I’m surprised it is still here and that its pretty untouched. Its in what I would say a prime retail location and is easily visible from the road…..

Found this old barn at the Laurita Winery when i went there for a food truck festival. There also is an old farm and barn museum there with lots of cool things like milk cans, old tools, spinning wheels and barn doors.

Sussex County Farm

One of many abandoned farms in Sussex County. Located on a main road it was an easy find.

a not so bandoned farm in PA

Yet another farm near the Delaware river in PA. I’m pretty sure somebody owns it, they jsut ain’t doing anything with it right now. Didn’t go inside any of the buildings, they were sealed fairly tight. There was 3-4 buildings including one which was leaning so far to the side I wouldn’t go in if you paid me. It was right on the road, so doing anything more than just wandering would’ve been… unwise.
