I posted a long distance picture of the backside of the barn and a picture of the house from this Abandoned Farmstead for Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Last week I took the time to explore this homestead a little deeper.
Looking west at the house. The left window was the bathroom and the right the kitchen. The far right addition looked like a nursery or child’s room. I could see the remnants of wall paper and toys left behind.
Looking north at the front door. Again, bathroom on the right and living room on the left. There is still furniture in place, but it’s in pretty tattered shape.
The Hubby says that the A’s lived on this place for many years and moved. The next family lived here for a very short time and left when J was a young kid.
I wonder why they left so many belongings in the house? What happened that they needed to leave? Was it in a hurry?
The yard is heavily fenced and there are several gates entering the yard. Was it to keep children in or sheep out?
Pink curtains hang in what looks to be the main entrance.
Elizabeth at Circle the Wagons recently had some thoughts about .
The clothes line is on the west side fo the house as the residents walked out to the garage and barn. There are two sets of clothes pins still on the line.
I have been itching to get down and photograph this abandoned homestead for a few months. My adventure leads to more curiosity about the families that once lived here, the life they had and the life they left behind.
Next week I will show pictures of the barn yard.
