This desolate home can be found along 119 Hawkins Road in the small rural town of Evington, Campbell County, Virginia.
Near the heavily trafficked Route 29, yet nestled and tucked down a winding country road lays a forgotten little house. The front door is swollen open from all the time spent in Virginia’s hot, heavy and humid summers. Facing later the temperate conditions of winter to swell again come summer. The paint is peeling and the smell of decay is heavy. Broken glass is everywhere. Insulation that was in the ceilings now cover almost every inch of the floor. A gutted house.
Maybe Janet lived here? A sign advertising Janet’s Accessories : Hat, Jewelry, Tee-Shirts, Alterations and Dress Making, is seen above. The inside still had its kitchen table, though flipped on its side. Curtains barely clinging on to cover broken windows. A sad feeling at this dilapidated property.
Decay from all aspects. The entire wall on one side has been completely removed. Leaving this small would be home open to all elements and animals. Birds, mice and all sorts of insects including plenty of wasps and bees now call this place home.
Filled with trash and endless amounts of open air this home still stands. Almost as an oasis for the wandering field mouse who can live inside yet left alone. Another home overgrown with nature was across the road but it was torn down some time ago.
