It’s no secret that I, and many like me, can’t resist old derelict and abandoned buildings, vehicles and such. They’re located in every county, every state, every country across the world.  There’s so many different reasons why they intrigue people – a sense of history, a pondering of who lived there, a fascination with decay or the ultimate triumph of time and the elements over the man-made.

Sometimes I research the possible locations of these old ghosts, but more often than not it’s simply a matter of luck to come across them. As a fairly new recent resident of Delmarva, here are a few of my favorite old ruins and wrecks.
