This incredible site was investigated by location scout Nick Carr of in Southern California, who was taken on a special tour by a caretaker. Abandoned in a single evening in 1939 after a tragic fire, it remains in impossibly good shape. Amazingly, suitcases sit next to the cobwebbed concierge desk, and wine glasses and tea cups sit on tables, undisturbed by time. It’s hard to believe that more people have not explored this!
