I was riding the Fork Union area of Virginia and ran across this place. It was amazing. Some people collect cars, some people collect junk, this man collected old buildings. The man who lived there was out so I stopped to talk, not just shoot a quick photo and move on. He had 18 out buildings and 3 barns on his 10 acres. He went around to abandoned sites and contacted the owners and got permission to remove buildings he wanted. Like he said, he just likes old buildings and collects them. Here's a photo of a bit of his inventory.

Glad you liked it Gladstone. Thanks

I would imagine so Chookies and sore backbones, too. Thanks

Tex, I wonder what it would be like to say "OH yeah, I've collected awhile. I have 268 of them. Thanks

I thought it was cool too, eaglefeather, being a collector of old stuff, myself.

WTF???? Now that's some serious hoarding!

chookies

...and a very expensive hobby, too, I guess!!

Gladstone

VERY interesting !!!!

warbler

Yeah Robyn-or if he even still has one:-) But I guess there are worse things for a hubby to collect.Thanks

robryan

Interesting! I wonder what his wife thinks of his hobby :))

It looked like he didn't put anything in them Lyndee. I remember he said he sold a couple of them and regretted it so he won't part with any more of them.

I think that one looks cool too, Aggie. Thanks.

Wow Fodus, it sound like someone else has seen something like this before. Thanks

chickiemama

Wow! I'm impressed. What an interesting hobby.

There is a farm along the highway that has many buildings on it...I wonder if he does the same thing? I'm sure we can't see them all.

aggie

I'll take the one with the cool looking chimney.

Now that is very interesting Warbler. Does he fill all these bldgs up with stuff?
