Photos: A Real-Life House of Horrors in Vermont, 3/9/02

photos by Tom Ellis | Thursday, October 30th, 2014

These pictures were taken on March 9, 2002, when the photographer, Tom Ellis, visited an abandoned house in Bridgewater, Vermont. The home had been inhabited years earlier by a taxidermist, and was on the real estate market.

Ultimately he did not buy the property, but judging by the photographic evidence, it was reminiscent of the setting of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The photos were taken with a Sony Mavica digital camera — which, at the time, was a common camera requiring a 3.5-inch floppy disk for storage. The pictures might be low-resolution, but at least the flash worked — it was very dark in most rooms, especially in the attic where the taxidermied deformed calf was found (and yes, that is real).

The house was torn down not long after these photos were taken.
