From the outside, this former church built in 1925 is nothing short of spooksville. Gravestones serve as faux lawn ornaments, a wooden russet fence hides away sections of the building, and “99% intact” stained glass windows seem to watch any activity that passes by.

According to the Realtor.com listing, the current owners selling the property had big dreams for the space. They dreamed of turning their “labor of love” into a possible bed and breakfast. We’ve got to admit -- if the personal graveyard doesn’t scare you off, it’s easy to see the potential.

“A significant amount of work has been put into the infrastructure of this building, including a new roof, and updates to the electric and plumbing, but it is still virtually a blank canvas, ready for someone to take over and give it new life,” according to the listing.
