Most Hauntingly Beautiful Abandoned Houses across America
They are all abandoned and all “hauntingly beautiful.” That’s how Northeast Ohio photographer Seph Lawless describes the images that he captured of the inside and outside of homes all over the country including several in Ohio.
Texarkana, Arkansas is the site of one of the country’s most infamous unsolved serial killers, known as The Phantom Killer or The Moonlight Murders. “That abandoned house is near the first road which was used as a murder site,” says Lawless.
The day after shooting in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, this house—which appears on the cover of Hauntingly Beautiful)—collapsed. “These are the last images ever taken and my feet fell through the floors several times photographing it,” says Lawless. “It felt as though it would collapse at any moment and I was shocked to see it had collapsed just hours after I was inside it. Truly frightening and still gives me chills thinking about it.”
The photos include a look at four abandoned homes in Ohio: East Cleveland, Geneva, Milan, and Ruggles Township. Lawless said the only one still standing in Ohio is the home in Ruggles Township; that’s in Ashland County. The others have been demolished.
