Neglected old farm house   15 comments


I pass by this old neglected farmhouse quite often. I can only imagine what it looked like in its heyday. It must have been a beautiful home with lots of room.

It pains me to see such ruination, but I still see the once-good in it. So I photograph it.

It may be that this will be the last photograph that is taken of it before it collapses, torn down or is razed. But I and the world will still know of it.

Please enjoy it. Comments are welcome. So are likes. Heehee.

  2. Great old structure – been vacant for a long time? Weathered wood can’t be beat for its character.

    • Some people take that old weathered wood and build stuff with it—maybe sheds, a lot of folk art, just all sorts of stuff. You’re right: it does have character. 🙂

      • I spoke with one of the contractors taking down an old mill here in CT – all the large timbers had been sold to Japan for construction use there. They we wonderful old pieces of wood – I can imagine them in an exposed beam home.

  3. Nice find…you didn’t get inside, then? 😉

  4. Wonderful farmhouse! I would love the stories of what went on in this house, the people who lived here and what they did.

  5. Old wooden structures like this would soon be torched by kids or fences put up to stop anyone going near them

    • Do you mean where you live? There’s a lot of these types of structures—barns, old farm houses and other out buildings—in mid-America. I photograph as many as I can. Unfortunately, I can’t photograph their stories. 😦

  6. Nice find! I love this kind of stuff too.

    • There is a lot of this kind of stuff in mid-America, as the BigCorp farms buy out all the little farms. It’s sad. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
