They moved out when? A look at days gone by.

I was coming back from a inspection when I happened by the place. I could only imagine the stories it could tell.

All I could think of Rob Thomas in Bristol Tennessee.

He do'es a lot of barns and homes from days gone by.

Sorry Rob I had to use the line.

There was a farmer there coming out of the woods on a tractor.

I quickly stopped and asked if I could take a couple of pictures of the old place.I asked him when was the last time anyone lived there, he said back in 1969 was the last year and he lived there.

He said it was fine and to be careful.

Then he was gane as fast as he was there. Was he a ghost?

Old home in the woods.

Good roof and very good framing. I'm thinking like a contractor now.

But the interior has a ot of work to do as you can see.

View of interior of old home.

The home was built in the time around 1910.

His family lived there until 1969 when they built a bigger home nearby.

Have a great evening everyone.

Clint, i always like the good bones on a home...sad to see a home in such disarray...at least the owners should move it or tear it down.

Hi Clint.

A very nice post. I like the photos.

I wonder what was the story behind it...
