I loaded this before I left home...was in a hurry to load something and this is just what I came to first. We were sitting at a stoplight in Crawfordsville...love these old buildings. I just wish I could have been around to see some of these places built.
Just an old advertisement seen in Vermilion, Illinois. I would love to know how old it actually is. Probably not as old as I think, but then again, maybe it is with it being under the roof. It has been protected a little bit from the weather.
On the back way from Mansfield to Bridgeton, there used to be a an old house that stood to the left of this little house/building. We used to always pause and wonder what its story was. A month or two ago, we passed and they were in the process of tearing it down. I figured everything was slated for demolition. Instead this has been given a reprieve...and has what looks like a brand new roof.
And this one is was left standing. I wonder what the plans are for these places...maybe they intend to make rentals cabins of them for the Covered Bridge Festival. Or maybe they will have some kind of shops in them. Whatever they do, I am glad something was left.
I am not sure this is exactly a barn, but it is a farm building. It is heavily cropped, but if you notice along the left side, you can still see a bit of reflection.or dirt in/on the windshield. This is one of those buildings I would love to stop and photograph, but no place to pull off.
This turned out much better than I had hoped...I was turned looking through the back window.
And just a bit farther on is this barn...the three above are along St. Rd. 41 south of Rockville.
This one is not a drive-by, it is in Parke County, but I can't think right where it is at right now.
These were all taken the same day as the photos posted here and here were taken.
