    Text - TinyLittleBees 13.3k points 23 hours ago I found an old abandoned farm house a little ways outside of my little town It looked as if the people who had lived there just up and left one day. There were still dishes in the sink and a coffee cup with a newspaper beside it on the kitchen table (the date was in 2011). All their clothes were still hanging in the closet. State fair ribbons were stuck all over one wall, one dating back to 1912. Had it not been for the thick layer of dust covering

    Text - that_one_guy_reese 8.2k points22 hours ago My old house. About 5 years ago I was living in a town just outside of Washington DC. The house was a short 2 story house with a basement that was built in the 50s. The whole house has a weird vibe to it, not exactly scary but unsettling. In 2011, the year that we moved in, the guy that built the house stopped by, he told us that he built the house with his dad and three brothers in 1952. During the building they found a few skeletons while they

    Text - 22 hours ago krissym99 18.9k points An abandoned mental institution in NJ. My friend brought there and we wandered the grounds and went in a few buildings, including the morgue. The offices still had patient files and the pediatric area still had kids artwork. It had been abandoned for about eight years at that point. It was us really creepy and also really sad.

    Text - kadyg 573 points 21 hours ago The solitary confinement cells at Alcatraz - which is a pretty creepy place all on its own. But those cells are like the Heart of Darkness. There are four or five of them just off the library, all the cell doors open onto a windowless hallway, so it's dark leading to dark. I went in there on my own and I swear something evil was squatting in the corner waiting for me leave my soul unattended. 10/10 for creepy, will not go back.

    Text - JustAHerpDerp 18.4k points 21 hours ago One year I worked in a haunted house that was inside a building that used to be a funeral home. The morgue was downstairs and still had the drawers. My job was to lay in the drawer and pop out when people walked by. Laying in a cramped drawer, in the dark, on cold metal, with flashes of lights and screams in the distance was probably the creepiest place. I scared so many people, including a middle school aged kid who straight up pooped his pants and

    Text - ArishaSmile 10.4k points 21 hours ago edited 5 hours ago I was in a youth hostel in the Netherlands. The bathroom windows were curtained - not by cloth or blinds, but from being caked in spider webs and THOUSANDS of spiders. More spiders than I have ever seen in my life. The windows barely let in any light at all. And the spiders were fed by the insane amount of mosquitos. Biggest spiders I have ever seen as well, other than tarantulas at the zoo. Spiders in the NL are not supposed to be

    Text - jahnudvipa93 10.0k points 22 hours ago I was on a family vacation to Atlanta, about 1972. We went to visit some cousins of my grandmothers. Twin sisters, never married, in their 80's. The house was in a rundown neighbourhood. From the street you'd think it was abandoned. Overgrown yard, part of the roof caved in, boarded up windows. Inside, it was all antiques, and furniture from the 30's and 40's, slowly deteriorating, and it looked as though they hadn't dusted in years. Wallpaper pealin

    Text - Dierad53 15.9k points 21 hours ago edited 5 hours ago I went to a rest stop at 1am outside Springfield Illinois a few years back. Went to the restroom and there was blood everywhere. It looked like something got slaughtered. I have never high tailed it out of somewhere so quickly beforehand.

    Text - poopdaddy2 15.7k points 21 hours ago I explored the abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans. It was closed for Katrina and never opened again. While my friends and I were there we found everything essentially as it was left 4 years prior: computers in the admin office, tickets in admission booth, even jars of fucking pickles in the concession stands.

    Text - mixreality 14.3k points 20 hours ago S room for brain surgery Operating It's freezing cold, they wheel you up to this stainless steel bed with a cage you put your head in. They tighten down clamps on your head so it can't move. Then knock you out You wake up multiple times over a 4.5 hour surgery, semi conscious, eyes closed but you can say "I hear you guys", or snap your fingers and hold a finger up like "waiter", and the anesthesiologist hits you with a dose. After they're done, they po

    Text - edited 11 hours ago 22 hours ago MaybeDressageQueen 10.3k points Forest Haven is an abandoned insane asylum in Maryland. It's posted no trespassing and technically patrolled by guards, but in reality is very easy to get into. I was there two weeks ago with my SO, exploring and taking photos. There are 22 buildings on the property, all just wide open and abandoned, covered in collapsed ceiling tiles, broken glass, and graffiti. There is still furniture in some of the rooms, and if you delv

    Text - BirdPerfect 11.3k points 21 hours ago I had a friend who cleaned out and sold foreclosed homes for a living. He once took me on a ride to a house he had to photograph for the bank after it had gone into foreclosure. From the moment we got there, it was unsettling. It was in the area of a ski resort, and the neighborhood was wealthy, but once we stepped inside, it was clear that it had been used as a kind of boarding house for resort staff. Numbers outside each of the bedroom doors, large
