An old farmhouse east of town. I stop to look at these old places and wonder, what was Christmas dinner like-did the kids get what they had hoped for?

The Nat. Forest in Northern Wisconsin was more or less clear cut at one time. Then alot was sold off as farm land. Found this barn a few years ago, and took a cell phone picture today (can't find my camera).



^^ The slab for the house is just to the right. Along with two smaller building foundations. The silo foundation is just to the left. I also found a small patch of apple trees not too far away.

It freaks me out how Mother Nature can take stuff back so quick.

Built in the early 1700's, apparently this was a feeding station on one of General Wade's roads. Scottish Highlands.

I find these old farms and ranches all over the American SouthWest. It seems very sad to me, every farmhouse, barn, outbuilding, shed, corral, business, silo, whatever, represented someones dreams, now broken and abandoned. What happened to those familys, what happened to those dreams? If I were a photographer/writer, I'd do a coffee table book, but along with the pictures, would be "the rest of the story".

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I see a fair number of these crumbling houses where the owners just stopped doing the maintenance. Once the house gets bad enough they drop a trailer on the property and move to that or build a new house.

i often wonder about the stories in these places. I m also sad that no one see what they could be use for like below . Lots of these place could be move or build into new building like below. Also a fair number of them used first generation old growth wood that is worth as much cash as oil is. Companies charge mega bucks for the wood and use it as flooring etc. \
Tiny Texas Houses .com makes them
