There's something fundamentally intriguing about abandoned places; they leave us wondering who was there and why they left. This Canadian church is especially perplexing given the artifacts strewn about the interior; it almost is as though their owners simply walked away and never returned. Here at SF Globe, we can't help but get goosebumps over these chilling photographs that capture the mysterious essence of this place. Check them out below.

The folks at Freaktography found this abandoned church in Ontario, Canada. Despite the fact that it's very clearly been out of commission for years (just look at the inside), the grounds seem fairly well-maintained. Freaktography even told Huffington Post Canada that there were freshly-laid flowers on many of its cemetery's graves. From the outside, there's nothing particularly eerie or decrepit about this place.

However, one glimpse into the church's interior is enough to give us goosebumps. It's very clear this place of worship is in a state of decay: there's visible mold and water damage on the walls and ceilings. Yet everything seems perfectly in place, including what appears to be a vase of flowers by the windowsill, stacks of bibles on the chairs, and even music open on the piano.

Freaktography described their eerie initial observation to Huffington Post Canada, stating,"Oddly, the inside looked almost as though the last service had taken place just last Sunday." If not for the open signs of decay (and evidence of animal intruders), we'd completely agree.

There's definitely a bizarre aura hanging over the church and while we can't quite put our fingers on what it is, we can palpably sense it through these photographs.

Perhaps the most chilling finds within this abandoned church are at the altar. Behold what appears to be the preacher's personal possessions, including a pair of glasses and some hand-written notes. Unfortunately, there's no date on the piece of paper, which would've shed some light on just when this church was last buzzing with people.
