Taking a drive into rural areas of the Tar Heel State can often mean passing by old abandoned homesteads that leave the mind to wander about the lives and energy that once graced the now tattered and worn properties. There’s something so haunting about a home that’s abandoned, not just sold or given to a new life but outright left to deteriorate. Under what circumstances would a person do that? Or, even more: How did the homes come to be empty in the first place? These abandoned places in North Carolina offer a fascinating perspective into the way the world used to be.
