    Thank goodness a lot of those old structures have metal roofs preserving them until someone steps up and saves them,... I hope.

    A beautiful farm, makes one wonder what happened. Farmland bought out by a conglomerate? Gave up?

    It was like someone went to all the trouble to buy an old Ten Ton rig, get the house on the tow platform, tow it to the new location and back it in, then just got out and walked away. No foundation on this property, which is actually a nice corner lot in a rural area with mature trees and a good spot for the house. It's been there a while too.

    So you got a three-fer. Abandoned lot, abandoned house and an abandoned truck. Oddity is a good word.

    One they might be fixing up 9E6CED55-A082-4BE3-9C77-D26DA8D94B37.jpeg

    I live around 10 mins from this Tesla site. I wish I would have known what it was Before they started bringing it back.

    old! Built in the 80’s. Nobody wanted it. Same thing just happened to Bristol Meyers in Wallingford CT.
