For 50 years the abandoned Maryland Silk Mill has sat collecting dust… and local ghost stories. What was left Inside has become a time-capsule of forgotten machinery, paperwork, tools, clothes, and calendars.
My heart almost leaped out of my chest when i opened this door and a huge metallic “Clunk” vibrated through my body, the door swung open as if it had been waiting for this release for a long time, it has an intensely musky smell to it which was almost overpowering.
This Ute has been here so long that a tree is growing through it. Another prime example of nature taking it all back.
This is the only shot i could get of the inside of the house. it doesn’t look like anyone has lived there in years, but every night the lights turn on as soon as it gets dark. Allot of people say its haunted, describing a shadow figure of a man in the front room. every time we’d walk past at night we would try not to look encase out eyes found something we didn’t want to see but our curiosity would always get the better of us. and as we stood peering into the window of this house a certain fear resonated from the idea of a haunted house, we’d never experienced a place with a ghostly back story before. But when we looked into the bedroom we saw something that put all the stories to rest. a thin mattress laid on the ground with a sleeping bag on top, so in the end it was just a squatter taking advantage of the electricity that for some reason is still connected.
