This old, decaying and abandoned country house is off of Mollie’s Creek Road, the small community of Gladys, Campbell County, Virginia.
A rather large home, the inside has 4 rooms, a kitchen and an attic like room that was attached to the upstairs main room. This rooms was filled with old mildewing books and misplaced pots. The rest of the home filled with items from the current owner but also antique items like a stove, refrigerator and single metal bed frame.
A large shed is forlorn nearby, collapsing and filled with wasps has old chains, barrels and more.
The house itself is falling apart rapidly. Birds live inside. The wood is bending, busting and bowing inside and out. Sunlight pours through many slits in the old wooden walls.
In the early 1900’s and generally any time before that, death at a young age was fairly common. This grave site resides less than a quarter of a mile from the house in a small thicket of trees. A tranquil and serene setting with a nearby pond and a large corn field all around.
The Jenks family name as a history of being farmers. It would seem this is correct with the location. Does anyone know where Ashby Jenks fell into the family timeline?
