Just Another One



Why yes.......yes, it is yet another old, rundown farmhouse. 

On my way to pick up my daughter from a friend's house, I drove right past this old gem.  Currently it appears to be used for storage with the newer farmhouse across the tiny, country road.  As you can see, the family cemetery sits right beside this house.  Complete with some incredibly old headstones and some new ones as well.  

New mixed with old.

  1. I love an old house. Everytime I see one I always thing of the history or what the families that lived there a long time ago was like. Great photo.

  5. This one looks like it was a charmer and a beauty in her day...Looks like whoever lived here wanted to keep their family close by...I don't think I have ever seen a graveyard that close to a house before.....

    Great shot Michelle....

  8. It's a shame this old house isn't being restored. It has so much character. Rarely, do we see family cemetery's around here. This is neat.

    1. Shug, we often see old cemeteries on farm land. But, not usually so close to the house.

  9. I love old houses, they look unloved, I get the urge to buy them and move in and clean them up but it's just to much work.

  10. A nice capture. Makes me want to learn about the people who used to live there, and find out who has been buried in the family plot. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I sure hate to see those houses go unloved...I can just imagine the history there. Have a wonderful week!

  12. I haven't seen a family burial plot like that in a long time! Now we just have the family pets buried nearby! haha.

  13. I think that Kentuckians have a strong affinity for family and home. So strong that one notices family plots strung along on various family farms -- and many times the old homestead house remains near the plot while it is crumbling. It is an interesting folkway and one that is sincere and loving. Good post -- barbara

  14. it is interesting to see the family cemetery so close to the old farmhouse. That is a true vestige of the past.

  15. Cute house, having people buried that close is a little spooky for me.

  21. Fabulous find. Sorry to see the old farmstead in disrepair, though. The cemetery would not bother me in the least if I lived there. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, the cemetery is right next to the house. How unusual!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Would love to explore that farm house

  24. Very neat! One could get lost in time sitting, taking in that site. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hmmmm...not sure I'd want to be that close to the cemetary.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love old farmhouses! There are a lot of graves by houses around here too, but that one is a lot closer than normal :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wonderful find! We see small cemeteries around here tucked in the most unusual places.

  28. and to think just 70 years ago this is what the typical farm house looked like...reminds me of home...I like that the cemetery was close to the family...anytime a body wanted they could go out and "visit" with loved ones who've gone on. well taken photo Michelle...and you can't take too many of these for me :)

  29. Great find! Makes me wonder about the family that lived there. I would love to explore the cemetery.

  30. This looks like a house that could become a Home with a good bit of love and E. grease. A little too close to 'certain' family members though. xo

  31. I know that I have already said so, but this is almost a painting, just out of Andrew Wyeth's hands, maybe...

  32. Beautiful! My mother has the old family cemetery in her front yard. I've always loved old cemeteries! Thanks for sharing.

  33. Wow! What a story there must be behind that house. I would love to know more. Great photo!

  34. What a wonderful old farmhouse, I'm certain it holds many a secret!

  35. There is something very beautiful about this composition, Michelle. Maybe it is the simplicity of the "full frontal" approach. Maybe the vignetting. Maybe the exposure that both washes parts out and saturates others. I can't figure out exactly why it grabs me, but it does.

  36. Talk about history in your backyard. Cool!
