H-Bomb’s Friday Photo, Week 15: a creepy abandoned house in Maryland

Another happy Friday to you! Later this weekend I’ll be headed to the great state of Maryland, to visit friends in the Baltimore area. I’ll be taking advantage of a promotion from Megabus that’s enabling me to get from New York City to White Marsh, Maryland for zero dollars round-trip (plus a fifty-cent service charge). In honour of that trip, this week’s featured photo comes from one of my many previous visits to Maryland (I did my undergraduate university studies at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, so I’ve spent quite a bit of time in that state). The image is of an abandoned house in the town of Sudlersville, on Maryland’s Eastern shore:

Chia house

As you can see, this erstwhile residence is heavily overgrown with ivy, and generally has that “life after people” look about it.

This photo was taken in September 2005. So the house is probably even more decrepit now!

Sharing is caring! If you liked this post, please tell people about it!

    OMG This is awesome. Another definite favorite of mine. Looks great in black and white. I wonder how far I would have to drive to photograph old abandoned houses?

    We live close to sudlersville. Do u remember the address. We would love to take a peek on our way through. Thanks in advance. Love creepy houses. Did u ever find out who the owner was?



    • @Tracy: It’s been over 10 years since I’ve been there, so I’m afraid I don’t remember the address. But if you showed the photo to a local librarian, they might know. Also, I don’t know who the owner is.


Tell me what you think!
