Rumor has it that this house used to be filled with people, noise and laughter when the owner used to come up from New York State a few times a year to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life to host parties in a rural setting. But those days have long passed and now the house sits empty in its big lot, slowly succumbing to time and the elements. Behind the house lie two collapsed barns, and a good part of the rear of the house has fallen in as well. What made the parties stop and why was the house left to rot? How much longer does this place have before all that's left is a pile of rubble sitting in an overgrown field?
