My plan at this special day was to visit an ancient grave, which is a famous sight in this forest. But after walking through a still working golf course I suddenly noticed something. I could see the outline of a house between the trees. As I went further into the grove I found there the remains of an old village that had once belonged to the golf course.

I could see the outline of a house between the trees. Beside two small one-family houses were the remains of a possibly old factory and a house, which was used for the storage of golf caddies. It was spooky to see the old equipment, which once had to be a luxury property. I did not visit the tomb on this day, but spent several hours in the ghostly old golf town.

This beautiful old farmhouse can be found on the back roads of Greenback, Tennessee. As far as I know, it has been abandoned for many, many years. I’ve been told that at some point, the first floor of the house was used as some sort of gift shop that sold flower arrangements.

Tiger Balm Gardens is the name of public gardens that existed in three East Asia locations. They are also known as Haw Par Villa gardens.

All three Tiger Balm Garden locations were built by the Aw family (Aw Boon Haw and Aw Boon Par). They were created to promote the Tiger Balm products produced by the family.

The original garden was located in Hong Kong but is now closed. The second is in Singapore (The one above), and a third is in Fujian province of Mainland China.

The gardens contain statues and dioramas depicting scenes from Chinese folklore, legends, history and illustrations of various aspects of Confucianism.

• THIS house. Built in 1803 by one of George Washingtons generals (General Ford I believe?) the man who owns the property gave us soooo much history and information, even gave us directions to the builders grave! One of the best examples of early American history, just sitting in a field rotting away beautifully. I can’t wait to come back (when it’s warm) and hike up the hill to find his grave. We were so blessed to find it, and find a owner who was happy with us taking pictures and walking around. • Highway 68 in Mount Orab, Ohio •
