From Bridgeton, Indiana


This door is located in Bridgeton, Indiana(<is a link to some posts with more pics from Bridgeton)...a very small place.  They do not even have a gas station.


Bridgeton does have a roller mill and is one of the main centers of activity for the Covered Bridge Festival every year in October

At one time, it must have been beautiful.

A very characterful door and windows. "Gas stations", as you call them, have disappeared from many, many places here as supermarkets have added petrol pumps and car-washes to the list of the services they provide and have undercut the prices of the smaller sellers.

Interesting old place-- So many small, rural towns, away from major population areas are nearly dead.

That must have been a grand building in its day. Love the windows and doors.

Sandra said...

that door would make a great decoration, in a garden, on a wall. I LOVE THE DOORS.. they speak to me.. maybe because they are old and wrinkled like ME. I scrolled through your Bridgeton phots. Wow. how close are you to this or is that where you live

I like the curved area over the doorway. Very attractive.

A beautiful entry that can be restored once again with a little TLC!

I love taking pictures of old houses and old doors. These are great images with so much character!

Even now it has a bit of elegance to it. Very nice captures.

I wonder if this was a private residence or something else?

Love the doors. If they look this amazing now I can only imagine how grand they looked when they were new

Bridgeton looks like an interesting place. I like this worn doorway.

I enjoy photos like this. I wonder what sort of activity went on that building and the nature of the people to whom it was familiar.

Those are really cool pictures, Rose. Sometimes old things are beautiful. I am partial to brick walls, as my mom's kitchen was all brick. : )
