While on a weekend camping trip to a nearby regional park, myself and a couple friends had noticed this farmhouse beside a gravel road. We suspected that it was abandoned due to the complete lack of any paint on the exterior of the house. We were unsure though due to the farmyard was maintained, the grass was cut and dirt roads to equipment sheds appear to have been driven on lately. After driving past it about 3 times over that day we decided there was a very good chance the house was abandoned. We drove right up and parked infront of it and approached. As we walked up to the house, we started to wonder if perhaps it was still in use. The front storm door was unlocked, and the main door was standing wide open. Just to be safe we gave a good pounding on the door and yelled "Hello", we waited, and nothing. We decided to walk right in, and we noticed that the house has a lot of furniture intact, and absolutely no vandalism. One may think the place was still in use, until you see the layers of dust, the water damaged floors, and a couple small broken windows. I walked around cautiously as one room had some water damage and a spongy floor. The main floor consisted of 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and the house's only bathroom. The main floor also had several televisions from various time periods, none of them even broken. I located the stairs and looked at them for a minute. This was truly one of my first explorations with the exception to some impromptu explorations I had done over the years. This was the first exploration were I brought my camera for the reason of documenting the exploration, as opposed to exploring for the sake of scaring the shit out of ourselves. I decided I had come this far that I would try the stairs, they were rock solid, in fact other than the one room on the main floor this house was very stable. The second floor consisted of 3 more bedrooms. I hunted around a little more searching for access to a third floor which appeared to exist from the outside, but only appeared to be a large attic upon further investigation. We found a calendar on the wall from 1976. I headed downstairs with the intention of locating the basement. After a couple minutes I had found the basement door, but it wouldn't open. I was about to give up, when I gave it one last pull, it opened an almost fell flat on my ass. As soon as the door was opened I could smell the heavy, cold, and stale air that was in the basement, it had been sometime since anyone had been down there. I proceeded down the steps into the fully intact basement. There was a workbench with tools and junk on it, there were many pieces of furnature. The most rememberable part of the basement was the cold room that still had several full jars (jellies, jams, & preserves), I have later learned that this is common in rural Saskatchewan. I didn't spend long in the basement due to the air, I was having difficulty breathing within a couple minutes of being down there. I headed back upstairs where we looked through some documents laying around including several greeting cards, farm log books, and many utility bills. We spent a few minutes looking around some of the buildings in the yard, some of them were on the brink of collapse. Overall I was impressed, most houses make for rather boring exploration, however this one was unique in the fact of the intact furnature, overall condition if it was abandoned since 1976 and a complete lack of vandalism. Overall not a bad place to explore.
The history of this farmhouse is currently unknown. Appears to be used for storage to this day, however according to calendars in the house it hasn't been occupied since 1976.
One of many intact TV's located in this house. This one you would expect to find in a Western Development Museum rather than sitting in an abandoned farmhouse.
Nice stained glass window, this was the only broken window in the house.
1976 Calendar on the wall of one of the upstairs bedrooms.
Decay has shredded the curtains which gives a spooky effect.
Time is starting to take it's toll
The only boarded up window I remember seeing
Now that's an old washer, and in very good condition
The stairs were very solid
