McConkey's Ferry Inn, Washington Crossing, PA

I went down to Washington Crossing, formerly Taylorsville, an unincoporated village near the site of George Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware River on his way to engage the Hessians . . . and since named for the event. This building from the eighteenth century was an inn and tavern owned by one Samuel McConkey at the time of Washington's crossing on Christmas night., 1776. Samuel McConkey operated a ferry as well as this inn, and both were highly successful. The Continental Army…

The Most Photographed House In Craven Co.

This is probably the most-photographed abandoned house in Craven County. It is located in an easily accessible area, right at a main intersection. The property is private, but being located right along the road, it's simple to pull over and shoot from the shoulder. I've avoided it for this project because of how common a sight it is, but finally caved when I found myself in the area with a few minutes to kill. www.forgottennc.com

This building was recently added to the Tennessee Preservation Trust's "Ten in Tennessee" list...a roster of some of the state's most endangered historic sites.

William R. Brown House

William R. Brown House

This Greek Revival house was built c.1855 for William Brown. His brother Lunsford built an almost identical house a few miles away. I will have a photo of that one tomorrow. This house once had twin chimneys that came thru the roof but they have been removed. This one is still being lived in but the other house is vacant. Martin County, NC. Thanks to Tim for the texture. www.flickr.com/photos/tsurrattphotography/4889838594/

The Haunting Remains of the Virginia Renaissance Faire

The Haunting Remains of the Virginia Renaissance Faire

Virginia's Renaissance Faire ran from 1996 to 1999, and since then the site has remained untouched, slowly crumbling as it falls into the Dark Ages. Besieged by the elements, these Tudor-style buildings and grand castles are inexorably falling apart.
