New York-based filmmaker, photographer, and urban explorer Bryan Sansivero recently visited an abandoned 1853 home in Virginia that used to belong to a Confederate Colonel. Despite the house being abandoned for years, it remained surprisingly intact – even most of the Colonel’s things remain inside, suggesting that he might have left in a rush. The house is filled with vintage furniture and appliances, and there are even old coats still hanging in the attic. “As an urban explorer it’s the kind of house you dream about. A house filled with so much history, every way you hold your camera a new story can be told,” says the photographer.
Take a trip back in time and see Bryan’s photos of this incredibly well preserved home in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
