#779. Old Homestead

Taken this weekend near La Grange, Texas. This is not MY old homestead...but is someones. Whenever I see an old abandoned home like this it makes me wonder what event led to the abandonment. I know it wasn't abandoned fifty years ago so that I would have something interesting to photograph today! So what was it? Someone's health problems, some past economic hard times, legal woes? You can't tell from looking at the remains of the building but it does make you wonder...doesn't it?

It sure does make you wonder. I love pics of old homes such as this.

I always wonder what the walls could tell you. It makes me sad to see such a beautiful house abandoned and left alone. I always want to stop and take a picture, so that it won't be forgotten. I really enjoy your blog.
