This place has a deep story and big tragedy -
Actually it's a legend but it seems at least much of it is real - A catholic wife lost her husband at young age. The widow was mourning and fell in love with her local pastor and got pregnant.
This never must not happen, she was in shame, the child was unwanted and she drowned it in a pool.
The women got arrested on grounds of capital murder and thrown in jail somewhere in the 60s.
Since the end of the 60s this house got abandoned and falled in a deep sleep since over 40 years! Unbelievable that since such a long time the place is still nearly untouched:
The furnitures, decorations, pictures, everything is still in place, it was an amazing experience to feel and catch this deep mood and the tragedy coming from this place. We will never forget about this unique day!
This is an impression of the living room, on the wall you can see a picture of the mentioned pastor - the windows and everything over and over full of decades old spiderwebs.
