The Nazi Memorabilia Collector House

nazi memorabilia abandoned ontario house

This location belonged to a man who collected Nazi memorabilia. Oh I know, I can hear your disgust already.  But what if I told you that this man has served with The Royal Regiment of Canada? Is he still a vile person? Should we contact his employer and shame him? What if I told you that this man’s father fought in World War II for the British Army?   Would you still want to know his name? Would you tell him he’s an evil person for holding onto memories?   The man who used to live here apparently collected and I…

This lovely old house belonged to Doris and Donald Barber, who lived in Guelph, Ontario. The Barber family began a painting and glazing store in 1883. Since that time, the family has expanded into custom glass, mirrors and antique glass. Doris began a business framing art (The Barber Gallery).

The Abandoned Money House Ontario

creepy doll

The urban exploring community chooses to give locations names in an effort to be able to communicate and differentiate them in discussions. The reference for this abandoned house is simply the “Money House”, the reason for this will soon be explained. The house is located along a quiet rural road in an area where it’s not uncommon for you to see orchards and crops. I observed several migrant workers in the field just metres away from our exit point when it was time to leave. The workers stopped to watch us upon seeing my partner and I leaving the run-down…

West Elgin Abandoned House

West Elgin Abandoned House in Ontario

This abandoned house is located in West Elgin, Ontario. It was a random find while on route to another destination. Take note of the wooden staircase and the elaborate design, and the newel posts. Such a waste to be left behind in this house. As we were photographing it, someone stopped in a truck. They asked, “hey are you guys Ontario Abandoned Places?” 🙂 There’s a ‘No Trespassing’ sign on the front, so use discretion if you choose to enter.

A Horse With No Name

I found this abandoned Ontario farm house while on my way to another location to explore. After turning around for a better look, I noticed that the front door was wide open (as seen below). I explored the inside, finding a large screen television and antique Coke Cola cooler out in the barn. There was no sign of the dog 🙂 There were photos on the refrigerator of a man riding a horse, taken on the same property. The property is currently for sale – asking price $5 million.
