Abandoned Dome Camping Cabin, rural Indiana

Abandoned in the woods of Indiana, this unusual dome-shaped cabin is all that remains of a once-active campsite.  Follow along with us as we explore this neat, but ruined building.

Attached to the dome house is this screened in porch.
 The history of this place is unclear, but what it lacks in backstory it more than makes up for in uniqueness.  We here at EI have simply never seen anything like it.  Built on a wooden first floor, the main structure of the house is a fiberglass dome, pieced together in pie shaped slices.

View from porch, looking downhill.

Quote from Sonnet XVII, by Pablo Neruda.
 Sadly, the building has been heavily vandalized, and little of its former glory is visible.  The walls have been punctured and much rot is evident. 

Large skylight, located at the top of the dome.

A similar hole, leading the the first floor.
  Did we mention that there is a basement/first floor?  Oh yea....

View, looking uphill.
Like the dome, the lower has been trashed too.  This is quite sad.

Apparently, someone dislikes drywall.  Damn.

I always learned is as "fight or flight."  I was wrong it seems.
Cleanliness is next to godliness.  Unless its next to a sink, in this basement.
In front of the cabin is a picnic table and firepit.  Strangely, they haven't been mauled.
A final departing shot, taken from the same angle as the first shot.  However, it was taken with a different camera, and looks sort of green.  Little stuff like this does affect your photos, and accordingly the result of your photo session.

Be sure to "like" us on Facebook or follow us on blogger to keep up with our posts.  Thanks again!

  1. This place is amazing. I live in Indiana, a photographer too, would love to see this in person. Is there any way you could share some directions?
