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.
Thank you for your thoughts. Whatever they build it won’t have the same character for many reasons including building material.
Sad to see this just abandoned…but a lovely image. Cheers!
I hope to get back to it before they knock it down but it’s either raining or snowing this weekend 😦
I’m beyond ecstatic about the weather…yeah right!
They just showed Ohio getting snow on Boston news. I think it is a “thank god it’s not us” thing.
Woo Hoo! We made Boston news! LOL
Which part of Ohio did they show?
I’m not sure. I was slaving over the stove.
Good for you! hehehe Or should I say good for Mrs. Street
Probably for a neighborhood of cookie cutter mcmansions. Or a shopping center. Or both. 😦
Afraid so…there are 500K plus homes right next to it so they may be expanding.
I wouldn’t be surprised. That seems to be the trend.
Sad… what a big ole beautiful place that is golden in our hearts. But not their hearts. 😦
Well…who knows why the owners left it but it’s character is something we aren’t likely to see again.
Or just forgotten about…the best truth is the one you feel from these places.
Maybe so but sometimes I’d still like to know the truth and then, if I choose, stick with my own.
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.
Either one is sad 😦
