Abandoned Farm Houses in Rogers

In Rogers, Minnesota, there is a collection of ramshackle farm houses on a plot of land right next to a well-traveled road and warehouse complex. Today, we decided to stop at them and take some pictures. This was the perfect season to capture the eerie, decrepit atmosphere.

It’s clear animals have been taking advantage of the unused buildings. There is a burrow leading under this shack, and in the barn, we saw a long-dead fox.

This isn’t quite as creepy as a mysterious crib would be, but it is still pretty off-putting.

 

It’s always fun to stop at abandoned places like this and wonder what their history was. I don’t know what is happening next with this land, but who knows how much longer these buildings will still be here. Taking pictures of places like this can be such a departure from normal nature photos, but still has a feeling of exploration and documentation. It’s nice to mix it up sometimes.
