A photographer, Summer King shared these photographs of an Italian-style mansion which has been crumbling away for decades. The neglected house near Red Springs, North Carolina, is 107 years old and its elderly owner passed away decades ago, However, it was recently bought by a man who hopes to restore it to its former glory.
‘The house was built for an Italian woman and her two children. The woman lived there until she got too old to tend to it any longer. After she moved the house sat vacant.
There are rooms hidden behind rooms in this house. I found myself getting lost just walking around it. ‘I hear the laughter of children and the mystery of lost memories hiding inside these decrepit walls,’ Summer King said.
