The Dark Side of Orange County I

Artist's Description

In all the times I’ve traveled down Old Greensboro Road in southwestern Orange County, I never noticed this collapsing old house back beyond the tree line until one autumn evening when the leaves had thinned out. From all appearances, it may have been quite a nice little home at one time. It looks like the original house had an addition built on later, though in its current state it’s impossible to say that for sure. The path or driveway or road that led to the front door is completely grown over, but is still easily picked out from the surrounding terrain. Which is totally creepy if you ask me (the famed Devil’s Tramping Ground is not far away from here in nearby Chatham County). In the fading light, I didn’t feel like spending too much time on the scene, but I did a full 360 around the outside. (The place is sketchy enough when it’s light out, I didn’t want to even think what it would be like in the dark.)
