These Haunting Pictures Of An Abandoned Funeral Home Will Send A Shiver Down Your Spine

The once majestic building lies in ruins, with crumbling walls and chilling debris, including body bags and embalming fluids scattered throughout. Formerly an opera house, the building was transformed into a funeral home in 1946. The chilling snaps were taken by photographer Johnny Joo (previously) at the deserted House of Wills Funeral Home in Cleveland.

Mourners could view the bodies of their deceased loved ones in the garishly decorated Egyptian slumber room.
