This German American House Was Left Behind With All Its Belonging Still Inside (17 Pics)

The abandoned house of a German American family sits secluded in the woods. The inside is a time capsule of family heirlooms and vintage furnishings. Take a step inside through the pictures below. As an urban explorer, I am always seeking out the most interesting abandoned places. Ones filled with objects left behind, that can tell a story. Those that ask questions like why would this happen or what happened to a family that they would leave everything behind? Sometimes the questions are better left unanswered, as the imagination can truly be the best storyteller. This goes for an abandoned house of a German American family that I recently found. It sits secluded in the woods, and the inside is a time capsule of family heirlooms and vintage furnishings. Take a step inside through the pictures below.

Find it very odd. The inside looks like they were stuck in the 60's, but the car outside looks modern.

My friends and I used to explore houses like this when we were kids in the 80s. So many families back then never bought anything new except cars and appliances and, for whatever reason, they'd just up and leave. Once we went by a farmhouse and saw a newish car in the barn and—naturally—still went inside to dig around. A squatter was hiding in one of the closets and scared the bejeezus out of us!

This looks staged, like a post-Apocalyptic movie set. The exterior paint on the house is not weathered. There’s Hollywood stunt debris carefully and evenly (!) scattered around the perimeter of a room, but nothing in the middle of the floor, dust-free objects artfully placed next to more detritus, mismatched objects from very different eras, but not positioned in places where they would normally be kept, and where are all the dead roaches, flies, ants, mice, rats, spider webs, mold and fungus, etc.?

You can say or believe what you want but this was how the house looked when I entered it and left it. So regardless of what you think it looks like I can assure that was not the case.
