30 Cool Abandoned Houses Pictures

Pin It

There is something cool and creepy about an abandoned house. You always wonder what the story behind it is. Did the owners die? Was the place condemned? Was it left to crumble because opportunity called elsewhere? Is the place haunted? Whatever the case, these old abandoned houses provide some great opportunities for photography. Here are 30 great examples of abandoned house pictures.

    it’s a shame that these places that meant so much to families were abandoned
    for what ever reason…they were castles in their day…look how long they have stood the test of time. unfortunately building codes and progress have made them obsolete and unlivable….

    Once it was a home with wormth, now awaits only to collaps….
    Keeping these photographed is a very nice idea.
    Cheers to good old days.

    I never leave my real email address.

    A lie,
    That a life worth living,
    Resides dying in the walls of rotten shacks,
    Falling apart, falling to ruin,
    I feel the pain,
    The loss of a thousand, no a million souls,
    Crying out for justice,
    For pain,
    For release.
    Can we ghosts leave these hovels now?
    Are we free?
    Please let us go.
    We are humiliated and alone.
    Why can’t you stop raping us?
    Please…

    See ghosts of north dakota.com for hundreds of photos of abandoned homes in the plains. Plan on spending hours on the site

    I’d like to know where some of the houses are located.

    And is it the same house in eirasi’s and orvaratli’s photographs? They look identical.

    Also, I agree with Maylo Harding– I’d love to see these pictures naked without all the touching up.

    Woow that is one amazing set of pictures, love the different light and colors.

    I’ve always been fascinated by these abandoned buildings, I just bought a book called Abandoned Adventures of Urban Explorers.

    Thanks for these pictures

    The chemtrail shots in some of the photos are even better than the old houses! The sky definately didn’t look that way 15 or 20 years ago and we had ordinary “contrails” back then!

    What comes to mind for me is that each of these homes was the pride and joy of the owner at one time …. makes you wonder what happened.

    Plenty of shots like these can be taken at the abandoned psychiatric hospital in Kings Park on Long Island NY.

    In fact, I was sure one or two were taken there, but no.

    Where was the photo “Abandoned” by kcolwell taken. I know a house that looks exactly like it and I’m just wondering if it is the same one. I’m kinda freaking out. I’ve always loved that house and it’s in the middle of nowhere! Please let me know!

    These homes are so beautiful and reflect who we use to be. it would be interesting to know if these homes still exist or have fallen victim to demolition ? does anyone know the locations of these homes? I would love to do some research..

    Some of these homes, for believe me there is still life within these walls. Walls similar to those built around a broken heart. Waiting for love to return, for a heartbeat to kickstart warmpth, feeling, children running through them would cause the walls to weep. I live in Baja Mexico our abandoned homes are over three hundred years old, would you like some pics? Eugene Heatwole. Hutwohl58@yahoo.com

    @Smithers, LOl! Thanks for your bizarre take on these absolutely beautiful shots of the most amazing old houses. I love, love, love old delapidated houses and I was having a romantic adventure reading the comments and then WHAM, too funny! I may never be able to wax romantic over an old house again without thinking of a horror movie, haha.

    The shots are truly beautiful. I can’t wait to show them to my SO :-).
