Stables and horse barn

I saw this barn while I was investigating something else and stopped by. It was clearly not abandoned, but the owner was very cooperative. He invited me to come back and take all the photos I wanted, which I was happy to do. The property used to be a horse stable with a 1/2 mile race track to train horses on. There was a main master house with 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 4 fireplaces. There was also a servants houses, the barn and stables, as well as another servants house where the current owner lived.

As we approached the master house we saw a giant turkey vulture land on the chimney but we were too far away to get a decent picture. Also as we approached closer there were curtains waving in the wind, but when we went inside there were no open doors or windows, and the curtains had stopped waving… Spooky.

The Bates Motel

This is a farm house whose owner donated the land to the state many years ago. The place is really run down and we were very concerned as we walked around that we might go thru the floor… The last 2 pics are of a nearby building which we figure was either a slaughterhouse or a holding pen for sick animals.







the dirtiest farm ever

This farm apparently was acquired thru a green acres program because there were signs saying no hunting or fishing, and then a list of state park regulations. The reason I called this a filthy farm is there were two rooms in a barn that were covered with 20-30 different messages, all of them obscene, all of them directed at someone named Bloomberg. Is this Mike Bloomberg? Are they an angry NY’er with an odd sense of direction? (it’s located near the Delaware Water Gap) or is their anger directed at some other Bloomberg. Whoever did this strikes me as seriously disturbed. I would not want to meet them.
