Before they become rubble, abandoned places in NC

We took the day driving around a few rural roads of North Carolina to photograph the old homes and abandoned buildings we have seen out the corner of the eye. Now that the leaves have fallen some new old homesteads are visible through the tree line. My friend and I had to photograph some of these old places before it all becomes rubble.

I have included the Lat’s and Lon’s in the event someone wants to visit them and of course be prepared for “No Trespassing” signs.

Now just a backcountry road, the Old US Highway 1 used to be the main thoroughfare between Washington DC and Atlanta. Just South of Raleigh NC the old road has some beautiful old abandon places.
