    Holland Island in the Chesapeake Bay, Dorchester County, Maryland. The island was abandoned by it's watermen and farmers due to massive erosion. This was the last house standing and it finally fell into the bay in October 2010. Most Beautiful Abandoned Places In The World

    Chesapeake Bay island vanishes. Holland Island was once five miles long. It was home to a fishing community of 250 to 360 people, with more than 60 homes, a church and other buildings. But erosion forced the residents to leave — with the last fleeing in 1922 — and for decades now the island has been receding into the bay and only one abandoned home remained, threatened by the bay.

    Holland Island is a rapidly deteriorating island in the Chesapeake Bay , in Dorchester County, Maryland, United States. Once inhabited by watermen and farmers it is now abandoned. This was the last house in Holland Island in 2010 when the eventual decline of the island sunk it into the bay. Located in the Holland Strait, between Bloodsworth Island and Smith Island.

abandoned ~ There's something hauntingly beautiful about nature reclaiming spaces abandoned by man. It's like a reminder that we are temporary guests. ~ ALW

"What an adventure it would be to find places like this. I feel like they are singing to my ears, songs of times past. Intriguing to me to imagine what might have been. What might have been."

    I'm the same way Theresa, I love to think of the past. I can look at a photo and imagine the family, what they did, how things feel. When I look at these old ruins I sense a longing.... I feel a part of it.
