(Not So) Speechless Sunday...The House

Home

This is a home I captured yesterday on a listing appointment out in the county near South Holston Lake. I've driven by it thousands of times over the years and finally decided to go back and take a photo. I bet there were many a quite night spent on that front porch telling stories about times gone by! I believe two sister school teachers lived here....I don't believe they ever married....you could see them always working in the yard when I would drive by here in my much younger days. Even when the house started down hill and you thought no one lived there you would see smoke coming from the chimney letting you know that life was still inside!
Hope you have a great day!

Great picture! We have pockets with old homes around our area, but nothing quite so picturesque.

Neat image. If you like walking a neighborhood you study homes and think about the process of decline or improvement.  Old farms with better yesteryear days get my vote, especially barns. That are like dinosaurs, going to their knees left and right.

This great picture triggered lots of memories of Long Island back in the day. I'm sure it doesn't look like that now. Have a sunny Sunday, Rob.

Your picture is a throwback to time gone by. A time when things moved a bit slower and most people were a bit calmer. Thanks for the memeories!

Rob,

It's always intriguing to find out the history of the people who live in places like that. It doesn't look like a home a couple of women would prefer to live in unless it has been passed down through the family and there is family history here. I knew a little old lady in Maine who had a couple of cottages tucked into the side of a hill because it belonged to her mother and father from the 1800's. She was very particular about those cottages and only rented them out to people she approved of.
