Had to walk 10 minutes down a dark path to make it to this property. Pitch black inside. This is a barn from the early 1900’s that was converted into a machine shop. I have more footage of the actual farm house. Will post it in another video. At one point we ran to the door because I saw it start to close then clicked like it was being locked. We both immediately thought we had been trapped inside. I guess it was just the wind, but this place gave us the creeps.
The living quarters for Latin Americans that worked at the farm. There is easily over 100 rooms and a two part basement. It seems as if the last time anyone lived here was 1988. This sits right in front of the still active farm. After it was abandoned, the factory used it to store equipment then in the late 90’s completely stop maintenance. This place is full of black mould, asbestos tile and god knows what.
In 1823 a descendant of the United Empire Loyalists by the name of George Kennedy purchased 200 acres of land upon. Mr. Kennedy constructed a woolen mill along the banks of the Credit River. A small settlement formed around the mill that took on the name of Hungry Hollow. The name was in reference to the difficult times that the settlers faced. The land was scarcely cleared, roads were poor and the area full of hungry wolves. For the first few years only two other people lived in Hungry Hollow: Marquis Goodenow and Sylvester Garrison

This was recorded a year ago and probably my 4th location exploring. We did not have the confidence we have now going into places at night, as I’ve been in 67 locations since this video. Ten minutes before this was recorded we had just stepped in the building and we heard what sounded like a metal trash can being thrown across the room. We bolted right out of there, then after a few minutes of convincing ourselves, we wen’t back in. It might have just been a piece of metal duct falling, but we’ll never know.
Construction began in 1948 and was completed in 1949. The church’s quarters became to tight for the growing population of Churchgoers in 2003. They moved some services to other Church’s basements until to make accommodate. In 2012 this Church was closed and demolished.
This riding school opened in 1982 and closed its doors in 2011 when it’s lease was not renewed by the landowner corporation. While open, the school offered boarding for horses, children’s riding summer camp, as well as lessons for people of all ages. Over the years, the school also hosted numerous tournaments. The school is situated on a large property with a main house/office, trailer, several sheds, barn, 2 indoor training arenas, 30+ stalls, private paddocks, and 4 outdoor training/show rings.
Sorry for the poor quality of the video, I guess GoPros aren’t the best in lowlight.
We’re both wearing air respirators for protection against mould and asbestos.
