I Found An Abandoned Farmer’s House Filled With Vintage Stuff (27 Pics)

Deep in the woods of rural Maryland lies a house hidden and filled with secrets. A time capsule of a family long gone, this late 1800s farmstead is filled with creepy dolls, antiques, and family photographs. Antique cars are scattered through the thick grass, and in the barn sits an old buggy, all overcome by the elements of nature. Take a tour through the Farmer’s homestead.

I dunno...a lot of this looks staged to me

Could be, I thought that the clothing and dolls looked a bit staged.

It is too bad that the photographer -- or his/her cronies -- so obviously interfered with their subject prior to photographing the scenes. Too many "perfect" settings and too little dust and clutter.

The most recent book in the pics at least is from 1968; i would figure a half century of abandonment would lead to a lot more mold and water damage throughout. But the VCR and CRT TV in the living room indicate this place was last lived in sometime in the 90's or early 2000's. Also, in the photo of the skates, the vintage box of WP22 electric fence insulators is right next to some very newish paint/stain buckets.

Likely some seniors lived in the home until they died, and they had no family to even check in and deal with their stuff. It is very common for seniors to have the majority of their possessions be 30-40 years old, and then one or two new things. I think your assessment of it being abandoned in the early 2000's is probably correct. There would be more structural damage/rot if it had been longer.
