Farm house gone...


We passed  this farm last week.  In this photo I am driving east.  The other day I was coming from the east...so did not realize till we got past the barn that the farm house was gone.  There was a pile of rubble in its place.  My heart just sank...I just so hate that it is gone.

It's sad to see old landmarks disappearing. Maybe the people have moved somewhere warmer.

It happens... WE miss them when they're gone.

Ann said...

The farm house looks strong. Was it demolished to make way for a new farm house.

Oh Rose, that made me really sad :(Farm houses like these are only seen by me on movies and photos just like what you shared and I can imagine how cozy it is inside plus the memories that it has been part of.

Happy Weekend dear Rose! work has been tough this past few days but I'm glad I'm back here!

It loos like a pretty good house. Maybe the main structure is not solid.

That's so sad. I'm glad you captured the picture before it was too late.

A fine capture of this farm home before its demise.

it can be sad. i have passed a number of barns, sheds, trees, etc, and promised myself to come back with a camera, only to find them gone before I got around to them,

What a pretty place in the snow. Too bad the house is gone. I guess time marches on.

That is so sad. That happened to me a while ago. There was a beautiful barn with a stone foundation that I used to pass once in a while. The last time I went down that road, the barn had been demolished. A piece of our American history is gone.

It is sad to see these places become abandoned. However, a lot of the young have no interest nor the money to pursue farming. I made that same decision decades ago.

Oh, that is terrible. Makes me sick to see an old home torn down.
