Abandoned Ontario Time Capsule House


During a full day of exploring in July 2015, I had the pleasure of visiting a truly unique Abandoned Ontario Time Capsule House in rural Ontario Canada.

My most popular galleries and photo uploads are from what we call “Time Capsule” houses – houses that, for whatever reason, have been left fully in tact with almost all belongings still in place.

This particular Time Capsule House sits back down a long driveway and almost entirely covered by brush and overgrowth. The individual who gave the information on this house has been watching it for a very long time, he has done the research and has assured me that the house is abandoned.

As is often the case, the person who lived here passed away leaving no one to pick up the pieces or pack up belongings.

Where is all the dust you may ask? In order to make dust you need people – with no people in the house, there is no dust.

Oddly, this home also still has power – does that mean it’s not abandoned?

All of this is up to your interpretation, but regardless of what you may think by looking at this photo – you are looking at a home that has sat, for years, untouched, just the way it was when the owner passed away

If there is one thing I have learned doing what I do, it’s that the more difficult the entry, and the longer and more painful the hike in is – the better the explore will be once you get there.

Almost all of my top 5 or so locations were a pain in the ass to get to but the resulting explores were out of this world.

This house has neighbours, to the left, right and across the street – the only guaranteed way in without being spotted was though a lush forest full of thorns, sticks, pricks, mud, swamps etc – and the mosquitoes under the scorching hot sun almost killed me.

Once I stepped foot inside I immediately knew I was in for a treat, this home was unique from start to finish.

In the dining room of this house was a heavy wooden hutch, behind that hutch was a door to a room that was being blocked from accessing.  How long this room has been closed off, no one knows, but you can see from the photos below – it has been closed off for likely decades.

Upstairs in the attic of this abandoned time capsule house there were boxes upon boxes of old items from dolls to old fishing gear, hockey gear, gold clubs, childrens toys and more.  It was extremely hot and smelled awfully of raccoon, but in this house I sweated it out to get as much as I could until my shirt was drenched with sweat!

  1. This is an amazing find, such a sweet frozen memory of some place in time. It evokes some amazing images, feelings and thoughts. My mind is racing with wonderings…..

    I really love the breakfast nook. I could see a couple, or family sitting in there having tea and toast and talking about what the day will bring.

    Thank you for the gift of this story Freaktographer, greatly appreciated.

  2. Always amazed to see what people have chosen to leave behind, whether by choice or by design. Hope the scrappers/arsonists/squatters don’t ruin this place like so many have before.
