Once a fine white farm house, now a falling down long neglected old place. I can barely remember when this house was decent. It just seemed an average farm house, some out buildings. There's a farmer who still uses the corn crib and pole barn.
The roof is falling thru after so many years of weather. I am surprised it is still standing with the winds we had the past two years. I like to think the reason it still stands is that it was built sturdy from the start.
With the racking as it leans the windows have long ago broken. The gable rosette is still visible .
There might have been a back porch once. There's a pile of old boards near this door.You can see the leaning toward the west.
Even the trees are dying. Poison ivy grows on some of them. In the summer the yard will have queen Anne's lace and orange day lilies in abundance. This old house sits right on the corner of one our Tipton's secondary roads. When It does fall, I hope it happens in the night...it would be sad to see it go before our eyes. It could also be a bit scary. I imagine there's plenty of critters in there.
Hey, the sun is out once again here and it's to be warmer, around 50 degrees....so I am going to get out of here and soak up some of this sunshine. Wishing all of you a great day. XO
