We have established that I am a nosy neighbor, for better or worse. Today I took a sidetrack after checking on my beloved pigs and oh boy was it creepy!! There is a mansion that is next door to the swine. This place is abandoned. It looks like the folks just up and left one day. As I walked by I noticed that the back door had been broken and glass was everywhere. Apparently vandals have been there. I ran home to get my camera and a cup of courage. I had to see this. The place was once called Mensana. It was a "pain clinic" back in the 1980's. If you are interested, look it up, a whole lot of #*%! went down at the"clinic". After it was shut down it has remained as it was inside. Now that the windows are broken and the doors wide open you can see inside.
It reminds me of the movie Grey Gardens. Grey Gardens is the story of two reclusive socialites who live in a derelict mansion in East Hampton. They were mother and daughter, both named Edith Beale. To say they were eccentric is an understatement!! Mensana could be a stand in for their East Hampton home.
Weeds have taken over what was once a grand front yard.
Here is where vandals have opened up the house. I was too scared to go inside, plus, it would be trespassing. I wouldn't want Cliff to have to come down to the precinct and bail me out - he's busy golfing.
Can't you just see Edith Beale sitting in her chair waiting for her tea? Or her cat food.
This is a second story window. Looks like something has been eating the draperies. I think I saw a
woman's hand waving at me!
Even the trees are creepy.
I really enjoyed nosing around and I would love to see more. I have looked at the property online and The place is full of big game mounted heads! The ick factor keeps going up.
So...what did you see today?
Thanks for stopping by.
