i've driven by this old place for more than 30 years, always wondering about it and why no one was fixing it up. i finally stopped to explore, and had so much fun! it is in pretty bad shape, and normally, i don't enter an old house because of safety issues, but the door was open, and i would just carefully peek inside…then i couldn't resist. the house is really old, evidenced by low ceiling and wide boards. i was dying to go upstairs, but couldn't trust the underlying structure. as usual, there's room added on on the back,and later a bathroom tacked on as well. it really may be too far gone now, but what a gem! next week i'll post about the inside!
