This House Was Abandoned In The 1950s. What They Left Behind? Chilling

In my childhood neighborhood, at the end of our street, there sat a boarded-up, dilapidated house that nobody dared to enter.

Some said the family left town when their child went missing, too heartbroken to remain in their darkened home; others said it was haunted by the original owner, a young woman killed by her husband on their wedding night.

Rumors and myths were endless and unfounded — but one thing was for sure: none of us were brave enough to set foot inside.

Every day, for reasons we’ll probably never know, houses are abandoned. Prized possessions are thrown into boxes or the backseats of cars, doors are left unlocked, and families disappear in the dead of night.

And often it’s the objects left behind — the things not important enough to take — that intrigue us most. They can be so telling of the family that once inhabited these now-empty rooms.

Thankfully, some people in the world are brave enough to explore these empty houses. If they weren’t, we’d never be able to enjoy incredible photos like these. Those last few really gave me the willies…

Now we enter one of the bedrooms. Judging by the soft pink walls and floral curtains, I'd bet this was a girl's room.

It's an old washing machine! Wow! This house clearly hasn't been touched in more than half a century. Incredible!
