A well around back, now filled with rusted cans.

Travelling along the road there is a private driveway. Entry seemingly forbidden but down a bit is the forgotten and abandoned remains of the Furnari Hunt Club. The land belongs to the Wilson Family however, the building belongs to the trees, bushes and vines reclaiming it. Thin wooden walls and sheets of tin make up the vast remains of this place. The porch is crooked and no longer stood upon.

Backside of the building.

Crumbling in on itself, it lays unclaimed by anything but time. Destitute to any life it may have formerly had. The tin sheets covering the roof seem to be barely held on by anything other than a few bricks.

A well filled with rusted cans is behind the back. A chair probably last used by the person chucking the cans in and drowning their sorrows remains facing it. Tires, wooden beams and overgrown grass hide potential trips to the doctor for Tetanus shots.
