Lace curtains frame the closed windows. The only breeze now blows through a broken window in the door. There's picket fenced yards in the front and back, but no kids play here anymore.
This homestead is haunting and beautiful. It's isolated location speaks to the tenacity of it's inhabitants. A town used to be nearby along a rail line. That line is gone and a ghost town remains.
There was much more to see here, that I didn't get photos of. 2 foundations were visible as well as several outbuildings of varying sizes. This places deserves a return trip when I have more time.
