That sure looks like what a haunted building should look like Jim'.
There is a very similar building in Danbury, CT. an old police station and jail. Not sure if it's haunted though'. It is now used as mental health center'..

I took this photo on Friday in Exemore, VA next to the tracks of the Bay Coast RR. I took it more for the weathering than for any other aspect of the structure.

I have driven by this small industrial area hundreds of times over the years. Today I noticed this rusted tank that was converted to a garage. Now this is rust'. This is a large tractor trailer hauling and repair operation. This brick building was a repair facility at one time, and now is a rental home amidst the industry, No kids or pets allowed... Interesting looking structure'.

Ted, once again proving that there is a prototype for everything. A tank turned into a storage area. Who would have thought!

I've seen water tanks turned into garages (and frequently used for winter road salt storage), but I've never seen one turned into a snack bar before!

Natural wood weathering of barn red paint on cedar shakes, on a house in close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean, North East Coast Line'.

Ted, what were you doing in the back yard of this house? Are you a "pepping Ted"?
