It is undeniable that Charlottesville has suffered far less than many other parts of the nation throughout the housing crisis. I just came across a website that is truly fascinating- 100 Abandoned Houses. This site documents photographs of homes all throughout Detroit that have been abandoned due to hardship. The homes are truly fascinating, some of them beautiful.
We are blessed in Charlottesville not to have been surrounded by abandoned and neglected homes. Others have not been so lucky.
Check out some of the incredible images here; 100 Abandoned Houses.
