Disrepair

An abandoned house!

The site has been part of the Watchung Reservation since the 1920s. Since the 1960s, Feltville has gone through various phases of repair and disrepair, becoming rental houses, outdoor education classrooms, and full residences.

Currently, three of the houses in the “deserted village” are being lived in. (Which has got to be annoying when visitors like me come along, amazed that there’s still a lace curtain hanging in the window! after all these years! and go to take a photo, and then notice there’s a light on inside, plus a stern-looking woman standing at the window. and oh yeah a teeny little sign in front announcing “private residence.” whoooops.)

Aaaaaand that concludes our Deserted Village of Feltville tour!
