Abandoned Main Street X & Willy Nilly 5 No. 44

click on photos to enlarge
For today's Willy Nilly I am going to wrap up my Pamplin City we go....
This little building looks like it's getting a make-over!

This little lady came out of no-where...she came running as soon as we got there...said we set off an alarm because we touched a building...she then carried on a conversation with us and herself...bless her she is giving my husband a much "unwanted" tour lol....she was nice anyway....

The old Pamplin City train depot...donated by Norfolk Southern and now used as a library. Yay! This is located across the street from the bank I showed you...if you are following...there will be a test...just joking...maybe ;)

The back-side of one of the buildings I've shown the ghost signs!

Another back view of another building...the backs look like they are in a little bit better shape than the fronts right?!

Now it's your 5 randoms, link up and visit others! Have a great Memorial Weekend (if you are an American!) and take a moment to thank those who gave all .... I am taking a break till Tuesday...will catch up then!

Abandoned Main Street IX

Pamplin City . Appomattox County

This old hotel actually sits behind Main Street. The hotel was built in the late 1800's as a home but then was converted to a hotel after the owner's wife became depressed following a fire at the family store.

The rain was really coming down when I took these...those are raindrops, not ghostly orbs ;)

This is the old bank. I was able to find that it was built in the 1920's. This building isn't exactly abandoned though. I *think* I saw somewhere that they rent out rooms...maybe it was posted on the side of the building...don't quote me though ;)

Isn't it sad the way the things were just left in the store like this?

Abandoned Main Street IV

This was the closest I could get the boys to this building. They said this was the creepiest one. I said it was actually my favorite. Just something about it.
This is the backside...
And a bit of a fence and sign...anyone able to make that out?
Pamplin City, Appomattox County

This is the 3rd building, going in order from Monday's post. Of course there was only a 20% chance of storms...and it had to start raining when we got there. Lots of the pictures look sunny but it was still raining.
