Abandonment: Mojave House

Broken Gate, Broken Home - Mojave, California
I photographed another abandoned house in Mojave, California. This house is very close to two other abandoned homes that I've photographed (click here and here), and not far away from two other homes (click here and here). That's a lot of abandoned homes within a short space.

I don't know the story with this particular place. The home itself was a two bedroom, one bath, maybe 1,200 square feet building. There's a basement that I stayed out of. There's also a wood shed out back.

I believe that animals were kept on the property, such as horses and maybe chickens. Perhaps other animals, too. It's hard to tell, but there is some evidence of this.

The house looks like it was built in the 1940's or 1950's. It appears as though it has been abandoned for at least 20 years. It is difficult to know for sure, these are just guesses.

I used a Sigma DP2 Merrill to capture these images.
