This video shows the moment a teen vacationer discovered an abandoned diner from the 1950s - that was in PERFECT condition.
Rylee, who asked to withhold her last name, stumbled upon the perfectly-preserved, abandoned diner whilst exploring a forest on vacation.
15-year-old Rylee from Orlando, Florida, was vacationing in Tennessee with her family when she heard there was a building in the forest of their rental property.
They went to explore and found the mysterious building - a diner and Texaco gas station from the 50s - deep in the woods.
“We were all in awe of the beauty of the house, the decor and surrounding area. It was so mysterious and beautiful,"Rylee said.
They weren’t allowed to enter the property, but that didn’t stop them from falling in love with the deserted diner.
“Initially, I only filmed the building and surrounding areas. We couldn’t go in, so I just tried to capture the entire area," Riley said.
“I uploaded the videos to TikTok as I wanted to remember the moment myself, but also let others soak in the beauty of it.
"The video gained a huge response, with over 3 million views and over 8,000 comments of people wanting to know more."
Rylee emphasized her surprise at the response to her TikTok saying: “I just did it for fun and wanted to show my friends.
"I definitely did NOT think it would go viral! I couldn't believe it when I woke up and saw how many people were loving the video.
“Since it got so popular, I decided to go back and film some more. 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!”
