Side of the Road

I found this old beauty while driving around the back roads, this weekend.  In the farmer's field, she still stands with quiet dignity.  



Linking up with Mersad today.

  3. The tenacious green shrub in the midst of the surrounding neutrality is nice.
    I always wonder about the story of these abandoned buildings and think of the former occupants and how they would disbelieve it came to this.

    1. Gayle, I agree. I am sure, in its heyday, this home was bustling with people and activity.

    1. Jen, there are quite a few old houses like this around our county. People can't afford to maintain them or feel like they wouldn't be worth the repair cost. Plus, a lot of farm are divided up and sold, thus the house sits alone.

  8. I would love to do some digging in and around this place. I'll guarantee you'd find some cool items, like old utensils, bottles, etc.

    1. Lowell, no doubt there are some gems still left in that house. I would like to go inside. We had to drive into a field to get this shot.

    1. Debie, it was just sitting in the field alone. I am sure it was part of a homestead, at one time.

  13. When I looked at that I saw all the years of families being born and raised there. If only all the old homes could tell their stories. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  22. Gorgeous!!! My mom would have stopped and explored it, totally ignoring that she could get hurt. We never did as kids and I remember exploring a LOT of old abandoned houses like this growing up.

  23. Would love to know who lived there!

  24. Michelle, sneak out there again with some pruners and take down that shrub. It might prolong the house's life by another six months.
