This house is one of the top abandoned locations I ever had the privilege of exploring in Ontario. The house was located in Dresden, Ontario along a main road. The land is used for farming and the house could be easily mistaken for being lived in. It was purchased by John and Katerina Drlicka in 1951.

Katerina was born on April 29, 1910 in Narodena, Slovakia. Katerina passed away in 1968 and John passed away in 1993. I don’t have any information as to what happened to the family except to say that it still remains in the family name.

When I visited in 2015 the power was still working. The main living room looked just like it would have in 1968, with the shag carpeting, pole lamps and chairs. The bedroom clocks were most certainly from the 1960’s.

One interesting find in this house was a hand grenade, which I didn’t find on my visit but other explorers did.

Someone has set up a drum set here. I wish I’d taken more photos. The house was demolished in late 2022.
