Thoughtless Thursday

  1. Just a note....this old farmhouse is like so many others in my area. When a farm is purchased by new owners, or taken over by family members, a new house is usually built on the land. Older homes are not typically restored.

  2. I have never understood why they do this...seems to me it would be better to tear it down.

  3. I like to think of that house in its former glory, well maintained and full of a busy family. Sad to see it like that.

  4. big house...must have been a large family and now their time is over! Keep Out, can't be plainer than that! Once adults and kids were in and out that door all the time...no more! Sad!

    great photos Michelle!

  5. I was just going to ask how come you find so many of these marvelous old buildings in your neighborhood and then you explained it. I like that they are not torn down. I know they will be a mess in time, but still, there's something special about them and they do give you some wonderful photo ops.

  6. Same way here, things aren't typically restored. We had a tiny farmhouse on our land when we bought it, but the foundation was crumbling and wood borer bees had done significant damage. It had never had plumbling or anything like that. In the end, we tore it down, sadly.

  7. I need a wonderful story to go WITH this house! The things that have happened there...you know it is RICH with history.

  8. If it isn't going to be used, I am surprised it isn't demolished. It is just inviting trouble with injuries to kids exploring it.

  12. My dad inherited the 20 acres of his family's farm with the old farmhouse on it. We would go poke around inside every time we visited Oklahoma, about every 5 years or so. The last time I was in it I rescued the Hoosier Kitchen Queen cabinet and the old 5 legged oak farm table... I had both restored and are in our farmhouse now. Not long after I rescued them, dad let a local farmer raze all the buildings so he could plant more wheat. I miss that old farmhouse to this day.

  16. Something about that "Keep out" just makes one want to see what is inside. I'm sure that sign would not scare any animal that needed a place to roost!

  18. Such a shame, really, not to rehab these older places unless they were poorly built when new.

    Funny how some folks find abandoned structures spooky and I see the charm of what once was.
