The Haunting Remains of the Virginia Renaissance Faire

Illustration for article titled The Haunting Remains of the Virginia Renaissance Faire

Virginia's Renaissance Faire ran from 1996 to 1999, and since then the site has remained untouched, slowly crumbling as it falls into the Dark Ages. Besieged by the elements, these Tudor-style buildings and grand castles are inexorably falling apart.

what the, holy crap. This is amazing. Why would this go under? Look at this place! They should start a kickstarter for it. Or better yet, some of the more popular successful ren faires should offer to buy some of the buildings and move them to their areas. Holy crap.
