Spaceship House

It's looking rough, and you can't go up to it since it's fenced off. There is also nowhere to stop to see it. Due to new building around it, it's hard to see from most angles.

Spaceship House

The Spaceship House (a.k.a. Round House) in Garden City once belonged to an old friend of mine's grandparents. It has been there for many years through many hurricanes, including Hazel -- at least that's what my friend told me years ago. We sunbathed there years ago and the inside was like walking back in time to the 1960s or '70s. It had the original shag carpets, flowered wall paper, TV, and appliances. A very cool place for sure!

Finally saw people at the Spaceship House. Looks like it's being lived in, with lights on at night. Really cool looking place.

Spaceship House

Talked to few locals that say they haven't seen any life at the house in a while. As mentioned in prior tip, the house appears empty but it is not rundown or overrun with grass or weeds.

The Spaceship House looks empty now. Chain link fence surrounds the property, but easy to see.
