I'm sure you've heard of feral cats and feral dogs.
How about feral houses?
Large parts of Detroit, Mich., have been abandoned, left as the detritus of a shrinking domestic auto industry and the collapsed housing market. Homes and entire neighborhoods that were once filled with people are now virtual ghost towns, the homes have been stripped of anything valuable and left to rot back into the ground.
Sweet Juniper has a pretty awesome collection of photos showing what they are calling feral homes. It's perfectly and sadly beautiful.
