Rylee said in her statement via The Mirror:
“We were all in awe of the beauty of the house, the decor and surrounding area and I tried to show the incredible details — the entrance, the vintage signage and decor, as well as a closer look at the pond and old windmill in the front of the house, I am very grateful for how far the video has gone. So many people got to see and enjoy something so cool that, because it’s so hidden and remote, they would never have been able to actually visit.”
“I’m thrilled to have been able to share it with so many people, and I hope those watching will appreciate this incredible relic. There’s a lot of beauty in the world; you just have to look around and find it!”
The diner looks so well maintained from the video that some say the place wasn’t abandoned nor the place was a movie set, yet these claims were debunked when locals from the area confirmed with Rylee that the establishment is truly abandoned.
Many are calling foul, saying the building and grounds are taken care of far too well to be “abandoned.” Some wondered whether the area was part of a movie set, but the teen denied such claims.
