I started a new page for forgotten graves and cemeteries here in Alabama and the surrounding south. If you’re interested in following @tombtourist ❤️👌🖤 But zero obligation if that’s not your interest 😘


Circa 1840. Hey y’all 😘 Hope everyone had a beautiful holiday season! I’ve got some catching up to do 👌 can’t wait to see everyone’s work ❤️


I’m taking a short break from social media to enjoy the holiday season with my family. Just detached, simple, sweet, “old school” memories to be made 👌❤️ I hope y’all have a very Merry Christmas! I’ll be back in January! See ya soon 😘


Poor thing has been vacant for a while. And it’s rumored to be to handed over to the local fire department as a practice burn in the near future 😑😞


One of the few remaining houses belonging to the Noble Family, one of the founding families of Anniston. Also, this house is one of the few remaining built before 1890. The Dixon House circa 1889. And it's currently for sale for $25,000.


1830 Traveler’s Rest


Lost our family dog today. So, not really in the mood for IG. I’ll be back soon.


and i arrive to that forgotten place where the only life left is of that of the sea and the stars where once the crowds gathered and i was happy but those people were gone now dead just like the magic and the ivy that once grew around the white house and flourished against the sun filled with life -unknown


1851 and still going strong. I like doing these photomerges, the original photo plus my present day photo. This place hasn’t changed much at all. Still has the original porch lighting 😍😍😍👌👌👌


I love doing these “ghost edits” and usually post them on my fb page during the month of October. Halloween, ya’ll! 👻🎃😍 This dollhouse was left behind in an abandoned antebellum house. It was kind of eerie just sitting there in the middle of the floor. And sad.

First burial 1792.


You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere...


Built in the 1890s, the orignal owner lost the house after going bankrupt. The next owner was a woman with 6 children. She made the children live in the guest house until the age of 16, they were not allowed in the main house. She is said to still "live" on the property today. "You can hear her heels walking up and down the stairs. She moves pictures off the walls." This home was visited frequently by F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald as well.


Tear down the house that I grew up in. I'll never be the same again. Take everything that I used to own, and burn it in a pile Bulldoze the woods that I ran through. Carry the pictures of me and you. I have no memory of who I once was, and I don't remember your name. -The Avett Bros.


But a house that has done what a house should do, a house that has sheltered life, That has put its loving wooden arms around a man and his wife, A house that has echoed a baby's laugh and held up his stumbling feet, Is the saddest sight, when it's left alone, that ever your eyes could meet.
