Lots of pics; let ’em load.
Old Mine Road runs through much of the Northwest corner of the state, mostly along the Delaware River. We found 3 points of interest so far within Warren County: the 3 minute traffic light, stone ruins of some buildings on the side of a mountain, and a group of abandoned houses.
Sitting at this light is probably the longest 3 minutes you’ll ever feel. Not too sure why, but it just draaaaags.
Not too far past the light was our first goal – ruins of what appears to be a house, or group of houses.
The fountain was what I liked most about this place. Behind all the foundations we found a lot of glass jars & bottles. We figured this was a party place, until we looked at the bottles. Some were the old-fashioned thick glass Pepsi bottles, so the litter’s been here a while.
Up next was a group of abandoned houses right along the river. All have “No Entry” signs on them, which we noticed was because some had no floors or paper-thin floors. Look at this house….the floor is completely gone.
Most looked like they were in OK shape. One garage still had a nice-looking tow truck in it. One house had a satellite dish, so this area hasn’t been empty all that long.
One door was open on a house so we leaned in to get a pic of the room. The floor here was almost non-existent.
