UFO house 02
I did some research in advance of going to the Outer Banks to see what I couldn't pass up and in the process learned about this fascinating piece of 1960's architecture design.
The "mothership" appears to be completely abandoned now with no sign of recent upkeep and lots of debris scattered around on the inside but the outside still appears relatively intact. The windows are decorated with various alien paintings hinting at the buildings previous usage as an ice cream shop but several spooky death-head masks appear to be there more for fun and entertainment.
A bit more info about the place can be seen here:
