In chapter two of George Orwell's Animal Farm, once the animals run Mr. Jones from his farm, the animals enter into his farmhouse.

Upon entering the farmhouse, the animals look around in utter astonishment regarding the luxuriousness of the farmhouse. They are stunned into silence at the opulence of the farmhouse and its belongings. Mollie, a white mare who is prone to vanity, finds it very difficult to pull herself from the mirror and the ribbons.

After leaving the farm house, the animals decide to make the farmhouse into a museum. They decide that the farmhouse is off limits to the animals and declare that no animals can live in the home. The farmhouse, therefore, is to remain untouched, and uninhabited, from that point on.
