A house – no longer a home

It always makes me wonder, why was a home abandoned.  Were there hard times? Did the owners pass away with no heirs that wanted it?  Were they bought out?  If these walls could talk – as the saying goes – what would they say?  Maybe something really different or just the usual things said in any household with the added nuances of farm living.  It’s sad that this house and the barn behind it are scheduled to be demolished; they’ve already knocked down all of the trees around it.  Who knows what is going to go up on the land but I’ll tell you this, whatever it may be it won’t have the same character this had.

Have a golden weekend everyone.

    Sometimes, they demolish a house to replace it with a big mansion. But you are right, it won’t be the same, emotionally.

  2. Sad to see this just abandoned…but a lovely image. Cheers!

  3. Probably for a neighborhood of cookie cutter mcmansions. Or a shopping center. Or both. 😦

    Sad… what a big ole beautiful place that is golden in our hearts. But not their hearts. 😦

  5. Or just forgotten about…the best truth is the one you feel from these places.

    I see similar homes when traveling to Michigan and I, too, wonder what happened. For me, it’s much more disturbing to see a place abandoned than, say, burned down.
