I think Henderson Quarter Horses is one of the famous farms in the city. I don’t have a hope regarding this farm as per the present condition. kosher restaurants new jersey Thank you so much for sharing this post here. Keep updating!

In all honesty i would love to take on the task of that barn. Its not in bad shape, and if so its nothing elbow grease and hard work and some cleaning cant fix. I wish i could meet his wife though.

I used to go out to this place when it was a thriving horse farm in the 70's, early 80's. Haven't been there in years. Dr. Henderson's wife comes in our store so next time she's in I will try and find out who owns it, etc. She is still involved with horses. Friends tried to buy the place a couple of years ago and it had a huge price tag. I figured it would be a housing development by now. I do know that Dr. Henderson used to do war reenactments out there and had sherman tanks, etc. on… Read more »

You were trespassing!! The property is clearly marked as private property No trespassing! And any others that enter will also be trespassing.

I don't know if you saw it or not but there is a whole back section behind the house. There are two more smaller sheds with a military door, a big fertilizer, and a fire dept. truck from Guthrie. The sheds also contain "Henderson's" old files and records.
If you look through these photos you will see. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.23422919
Very Fascinating, and thanks for sharing

As a "horse person" I find it very sad that a nice home and horse facility is going to waste like this. =(

Thank you for sharing the pics. Very interesting!

I used to board my horses there, back in the day. Dr. Henderson, his wife and their children were all friends of mine. Many World Champion Quarter Horses lived at this farm. Many others were in short residence there during the QH World Show (didn't want to stable at the Fairgrounds). Dr. Henderson was eccentric, but was always very nice to me. I remember one time his showing up at the barn in one of his military jeeps with a loaded machine gun on the turret! LOL Another time, he told me to not go near the house if there… Read more »

Well, for one thing, for sure it's trespassing. And if it were my place, I'd sure like to catch someone on it. On the other hand, there are many more interesting and much more historic sites than this dump. It was a disaster, when it was a going concern. I'll bet you guys miss more than you photograph.

Actually, no one said they trespassed to get pictures of this property, please dont assume that. I am speaking for myself as well as the other explores on here, depending on locations, we will spend hours there documenting everything. Sometimes we take far too many photos to post on here. But I'll take your constructive criticism and post happy demeanor as your way of saying you enjoy this site.

Hey Steve. Thanks for the comment. I can assure you that when it comes to interesting locations, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What we find interesting might not be to another, and vice versa. So in the tradition of AbandonedOK, we put everything we find out there to the world to enjoy and share their memories. This location is actually a great example. We couldn't find any history on this place in any of the archives we are members of, and left it up to the comment section to do the work for us. I'm not sure… Read more »

Curious to know, why would anyone be interested in trespassing on someone elses property. This place is not exactly public domain. Would hate to get caught.

to preserve the history of this great place before someone destroys it. i have been to a few places on this website and they have all been vandalized, its really a shame that people do that kind of thing. i am an aspiring photographer and i think that this place, from the pictures posted on here, looks like a great spot to take my own pictures. i would really appreciate the address to this spot. here is a link to my photography page, to prove that i really take pictures http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/group.php?gid

Steve, I should think the existence of this website and all the wonderful photos we have taken are more than enough reasons to understand "trespassing". Its all about ones intentions. "Take only photographs, leave only footprints". I believe people give up the right to keep explorers out when they neglet their historical property and let it decay. If you'd hate to get caught, dont do it 😉

Thanks, that's really interesting. It's great that you know so much about this place. Can you give any other clues as to where it is? Besides by the turnpike?

This was the home of Dr. Joseph Henderson, a local anestheologist, militaria collector, historian, and gun collector and enthusiast who lived on this site. Joe's wife enjoyed horses, which she took to many area and out of town shows. The Kilpatrick Turnpike and nearby housing developments swallowed part of the farm. Dr. Henderson passed on in the late 90's and the rest is history. There is no telling what might be buried around that place. Surely a cache of ammunition!!! As Joe was an avid survivalist, who thought a good deal about keeping things hidden. There are several large dump… Read more »

Tell us more about this place, please. Very fascinating. What was the place like in its heyday? What happened to the family and horses that were here? When was it abandoned and why?
