DSCN0229

“Out there” yesterday crusin’ the back country roads around my area, I happen to come across this old farm house that must have been here to awhile.  I thought that it was “interesting”, so I started walking around with the camera.  Since there were no “Private Property” Signs anywhere to be seen, I didn’t worry about being caught doing something that might get me shot at or thrown off the property.

You really can’t see this, but it’s a nice looking ole’ home despite the condition that it’s in.  What interested me was the stone work and the layout of the home.  It has/had a nice front porch and plenty of windows.  I wanted to go “snoop around” inside, but thought it would not be a good idea at the time.  You don’t know what/who is in there.  At one time in it’s past, this was probably a nice stone home and worth some tidy some of money.  What also got me is why is this home like this?  What happened here that it has gone to waste?  Who lived here?  Where are they now?  A number of questions that I’d like answered, but probably never will.  If someone that had enough money to restore this, it would be a great home to have.

About 100 yds. off to the left of the house stands this shell of a barn that I assume goes along with the house.  It sorta looks like there was a structure fire here and it burned to the ground leaving just the walls/framework.  Did the roof just cave in from neglect?  What was this used for and when?  I just don’t know.  It has lot’s of land in front of it, as you can see.  Was this barn the cause of the house to be abandoned?  Was it too much for the people that once lived here?  These questions will probably go un-answered.

  • So many tales those walls could tell, if only….
    Maybe the county still has records about this place. There must be a house flipper in the area that could restore it?
