Geolocating Jeremy Abbott’s explore of an “abandoned 1800s farmhouse”

In this video, Jeremy Abbott (Jeremy xPlores) visits an old house full of stuff:

I was once again able to geolocate it.

What helped was this label:

It describes a Scott Meyers at 50 Dickens Field Road. That checks out per Dun and Bradstreet.

While this does not correspond to an actual address, it narrows down the vicinity:

Maybe he’s also known as Coot Meyers?

A search on Scott’s company’s phone number turns up a property on Broad Street, a hair south of the western terminus of Dickens Field Road. That is owned by Sharon Joyce.

Well, glory be, Sharon turns up later in the video!

OK, so this is likely on one of her properties.

Using various references in the video, I narrowed it down to this building:

Now for today’s episode of uncovering the misinformation.

First, this is not abandoned. Rather, it’s an old home that is economically unviable to restore. It has new life as a storage facility.

Who’s storing stuff? Likely either the resident of the mobile home adjacent to this house or the house just south. Both are owned by the same person as this old house.

Second, this house is from 1914 per county tax records, not 1800s!

Finally, some commentary on the Confederate stuff: This crap is not uncommon in rural, southern homes. In more recent times, Confederate memorabilia is (correctly!) understood to usually be racist. But that understanding is due to an open, public discussion in which society is gradually coming to understand the Lost Cause of the Confederacy for what it is: a false narrative concocted to whitewash Confederates, who were simply traitors and bigots.

Years ago, Confederate crap was just something Southerners tended to have in their homes. It does not necessarily connote hardened, bigoted views. That this crap is still lying around in a storage building full of accumulated debris is not remarkable. It does not support Jeremy’s narrative.

While it is possible Jeremy spoke with Sharon or someone else, Jeremy’s well-trod pattern is to see something in a house and make up a phony narrative. Given this pattern, the narrative about the children finding new ways different than the parents is probably phony.

Yet again, a phony narrative dupes viewers into watching a lengthy run-through of worthless debris in an almost worthless building that is serving its last economic use.
