    1886 Parker County Courthouse in Weatherford, Texas. It sits right in the middle of a roundabout.

    An old cell phone pic from 2002. Louisburg, KS.
    I have no idea what this once was; it was beside a ravine, off the road a fair bit. The stone staircase and railings is interesting.

    its an old sod house. They were popular in that part of the world at one time. I worked on a farm in southwest Kansas as a teenager (near Liberal) and there were a few abandoned homesteads with those.

    I've seen a ton of this for a certain era of houses.
    That looks kinda like brick, but it's some kinda tar paper with a brick textured outside.
    This may well be the nicest house I've seen covered in that crap.
    It sure looks rough toward the end of its life....
    I could be wrong, it may be actual brick, but it looks a lot like that brick/paper siding
    junk I've see a lot.

    That's actually asbestos shingles covering the house and as you said there are a lot of structures in Tennessee that were built this way.

    Can you give a coordinate or location of this? I go through that area occasionally and would like to see it.

    It was right in town--somewhere N of Amity and W of Metcalf, as best I can recall. Maybe start looking behind the Landmark National Bank? I think they've built some houses back in there since, so it the area not be as accessible now.

    I know exactly where this is :cool:
    My family has some property between Graysville and Soddy Daisy. Haven't been there in close to a decade now, although I've been in the area a few times.
