This Rotting Mansion Kind Of Represents The American Dream

In a rural area in Maryland, reader MrStinkhead came across something that’s not so unusual: a mansion in the middle of a swath of farmland. What makes it unusual is that construction stopped partway through, sometime in 2010, and the building has been left exposed to the elements since. We don’t have any more details than that, which makes it nicely mysterious.

This might have been someone’s dream home, and now serves as a reminder of what happens when you dream too big.
