  2. I was thinking the same thing...would love to know the history of this house. Very cool.

  3. At present I do not know any history about the house, except that it is much like many farmhouses in my area. Left empty after the farm quit being used.

  6. Wonderful photos! I've always loved old houses. I make up stories in my mind of the people who lived there - what they were like and how they lived.

    I've enjoyed your blog.

  8. Unlike everyone else who was applying old to the house, it was going through my mind...does that apply to me. I hope not, but as I just turned a year "older" it did occur to me.
    Love the "old" house and like the truck on yesterday's post, I bet it could tell alot of stories.

  9. You have found an original way of captioning a beautiful photo. Sometimes old is not so picturesque, but in this case it is just great!

  10. Nice photos. I like how you have used three viewpoints of the same subject to describe the interesting concept here. It's a shame the building has been left derelict in such a nice spot. Here in the UK, countryside is hot property.

  21. What a beautiful set of pictures! Can you imagine the history of that home? How it once was? There's something magical about finding something so old, and with so many possibilities.

    A happy Sunday to you!

    Warmly,

  22. Love your photos, but I'm always sad to see those old abandonded farm houses. Wish someone along the line had decided it was worth keeping up.

  23. Great photos...it's so sad that a charming farm house would be left to ruins...the history there would make a nice tale!

  25. OLD--

    You make old chic! I've been told I should have been born 100 years ago since I like OLD, OLD, OLD. However, likely, living then would only create nostalgia for times even OLDer!

    Thanks for the memories. Your blog is divine! Have you discovered Suzanne McMinn's Chickens in the Road blog? You two seem to be kindred spirits.

  26. Pics and words definitely are meant to be together!!
    That place makes me want to go in and snoop around.

  27. Don't you wish that building could talk? It is such a shame to see abandoned farms. The backbone of America was its farms and manufacturing and both are sadly disappearing ;(

  28. Oh...to hear the stories it has to tell.
