While my wife and I were eating lunch at Fat Mamma's Tamales, we met a couple of locals who told us about an abandoned house in town called "Arlington House" and suggested we go check it out, but being warned that it was in severe disrepair. I, loving abandoned places, was immediately intrigued so later in the day we went to check it out. What a beautiful place this home must have been in it's heyday. It's a grand house with these huge columns overgrown with kudzu. I do think that abandoned places like this are still beautiful in some haunting way, begging your mind to wonder what it must have been like and the stories it has to tell. I love finding these places and exploring them and capturing the beauty that I see and that these place still hold. Unfortunately, as is the case with all abanondoned places that are easily accessed, vandals have made their mark and taken away from some of the beauty that even its abandonement holds.
