Abandoned 1800's Orphanage



this video is made possible by your generous support on patreon what is up guys it is John and today I am at an epic location behind me is what is known as the Riverside orphanage now this place was originally built in the 1820s as a match as a privately owned mansion at that time now in the mid-1800s this place was converted into an orphanage and stayed that way all the way until the mid 1900s now at that point it became a private residence again until the late nineteen eighties when it was left abandoned and today we're going to explore this place from top to bottom so guys follow us after a nice little hike through the woods we've made it to this spectacular location most explored I'm just in all about something this old it's still here and its glory I love these old historic mansions like this what is now consumed my brush and wildlife you just imagine for example these old stairs right here how this used to be the yard and have magnificent this looked back in its heyday it's going up I notice there's an old dresser get around here you see this is all original oats stone here me this old antique I mean that's got to be very very old few guys have any idea how this might be please comment down below another giant cabinet on his old wallpaper it stuck to the side of this jackass as I come in you notice this old staircase even got some ornate here a lot of history in this whole place one of the first things I'm noticing it's a good sign that the house was built way before electricity it celebrated wiring that was obviously added in after if you look here comes to these old switches continues on down to the floor that's wonderful this old curtain hanging here all the old bed is still here perhaps it was the mate to the dresser that was outside the old chest of drawers at the old fireplace here Wow still got the old metal cast iron thing that held the logs built-in closets here that was listed been built after the house was built to create more storage space that's an old mattress oh and they have built drop ceiling this was common in these old houses to help keep it warmer in the winter because that he rise in the taller ceilings would take away all the heat got another newspaper here dating 1987 I'm noticing here got this concrete pad this used to be a fireplace it's kind of a weird wall out here no the floor and they filled up at some point the fireplace was here here's two looks like a wig and used to be someone old furnace or something it's kind of cool this was a Harry Potter's it's a creepy old crutch here in the corner this appears to be a leak coming through you can see how much more deteriorated this wall is than the others if you look at the wallpaper that's coming down I just love I don't know when this was from this is what I wish I had Heather she would bill tell me but I want to guess maybe 20s if y'all have any idea when this new wallpaper what era this might be from please comment down below here's a bathroom that was most likely added it's not girlie this old sink in some water what it came out this all Madison cabinet this is so cool hi but turlet has not been used enough and I did while she smoked plumbing sticking out through the floor oh wow we got an old toothbrush and some old tape what was in a bottle the toilet paper still here man that's an old toilet paper I'll get the zones on that bed it's pretty cool always that creepy chair in the middle of the room boards a little crunchy in here here's the kitchen no that's glory it's actually a very spacious kitchen for the tongue most likely when this house was built it had a detached kitchen this was probably kind of put in this room as a kitchen I loved the old sink first house I ever lived in with my wife we had a sink like that Oh teacups are still here how cool is that can't read anything on bottom some of these well tea cups for some money having ten fun porcelain china made in Japan maybe that's worth something I don't know you guys let me know down below this old sofa the arms are pretty cool it's gotta be 70s I mean that old material it's pretty cool all the curtains are still hanging up the blue there is no blue up there they take how to hain't blue oh yeah fixtures just noticed that that is cool definitely know something yes let's go upstairs I'm amazed at how solid oh this is my mom sees no houses you don't want to go

let me know and another empty closet there's more that watering us on my water board you just be exposed like add I wonder when the last time a cigarette was put out in that ashtray I'm fascinated with this wallpaper because I really don't know much about who that is this guy has amazed fills textured somebody's been doing the dirty up here ok guys I found the entrance to the basement here or cellar entrance if you will people apparently we're way shorter back man oh wow oh look at this wiring got these insulators here it's definitely some old-school stuff I'll do this on door that is cool

    Awesome.. I believe you are correct on the matching bed and chest of drawers
    They have a distinct pattern. The top drawer and the head and foot board…

    The wiring I that house was called, Knob and Tube. It preceded modern wiring and was installed like a power line running through the building, using copper wire coated with a heavy cloth type insulation.

    This was a wonderful walk through Jon; the best part of it was; there was no vandilization or "Hoolaganized" The craftsmanship is second to none; someone could really fix it up…great tour Jon, keep em coming 🙂

    That wallpaper with big flowers green, yellow looks like 60s or 70s to me. But I think the wallpaper in bath may be older. Love the video. ✌? from Maine

    Awesome live stream. That 1st wallpaper you showed I believe is from the late 60's early 70's. Had some just like that in my 1st apartment. The textured stuff is later prob late 70's early 80's. That's harder to tell from a picture. I love how you appreciate and respect older articles and antiques. Keep Safe ❤Keep Well ❤

    I used to help my grandmother wallpaper. I'd say that wallpaper is from the 50s or 60s.

    Happy thanksgiving! Truly an Incredible explore! Awesome video Jon. The wallpaper is from 1945 -1970's. Some wallpaper looks original to the house and some mid to late 1800's Dresser on the porch is around 1930's and the sofas are from 1945 -1960's maybe 70's. All of which is in incredibly great condition. Especially the building itself. Stay safe, Stay savage!™ ✌&?

    Best part was those wood framed window screens, the house I grew up in had those and the storm windows that people would replace them with for the winter time… Cool video, Thanks…

    Yes an old floor furnace. Us girls way back in the 1960s would stand on it and it would blow our dress up like Marilyn Monroe.

    Those old houses have ages of modifications. Wall paper is an easy way to refresh an interior. I had an opportunity in the 90's to walk through my grandparents old country house. I was going to come back with my camera. When I did, it had been torn down. That house wasn't big as I thought it was when I was 4 years old. The doors were only 2 feet wide. It was an old house in the 50's. Also, these old houses are many times accompanied by creepy feelings.
