    Bravo. Your photos present not only the visual sense of adandonment but also the actual feeling of the dilappidated and desperate condition of the buidlings.

      Yes, I watched it deteriorate over the years … I always “meant” to stop and take photos, but when I saw the land clearing — I made a point. The next time I traveled through the area, the house was gone. 😦

    This is really interesting. This isn’t “abandoned” in the sense of “really old and falling down after generations of use.” This looks more like “abandoned after the money ran out and Uncle Louis had his heart attack and there wasn’t anyone around who was interested in seeing the project through to completion.” Great photos of a house I’d like to rebuild. 😉

      This house belonged to the grandparents of the landowner’s wife, both of whom are in their late 60s — that would make it well over 75++ yrs old … unfortunately the house is no longer in existence. The owner tore it down and had the pieces hauled away. 😦

    perfect image for the prompt! I always wonder about the story such buildings could tell us.

      A very large family was raised in this house. When I stopped to take photos, the owner stopped to see what I was doing. We found out the house belonged to his wife’s grandparents. The owner was in his late 60s – so I am surmising the house is well over 75++ yrs old. Unfortunately, he tore it down, and the land is now empty. 😦 The stories would be priceless!

        It’s does seem even sadder when the abandoned building is gone. There was one we really loved nestled in a grove of trees with rolling hills behind. Then, one trip it wasn’t there.
        We thought someone might rebuilt, but then even the land was abandoned.
