Thanks for this photo. I lived in an old place like this in Kentucky for about five years with kids, dogs, horses,cats, wood burners, kerosene heaters and a pig or two. The place was falling down when we moved in. We fixed it--sort of--and stayed a while. It was our Mother Earth News experiment. The snow is what makes the picture so much more than just another photo.

There's just something about these old, abandoned farmhouses. Your caption for it is perfect. Great shot.

You've captured an American farm heritage slowly being lost as these once warm and loved homes are fading. Thank you from an Iowa farm girl who treasures her past.

Wow--congrats on this lovely one, Sheila, and on the response you've had. I'll just add that it is a good example of what's called by the architectural historians an" I-house", defined by folklorist Fred Kniffen as "one room deep, two rooms wide, with gable ends, two stories high, with two chimneys (internal, normally) and usually a central hall". This one also has an end-right-angle addition, probably added later. Kniffen studied these houses decades ago and found so many in the upper midwest (Indiana, Illinois, Iowa) that he called them "I-houses". They come from the English building tradition. Even central New Jersey has many of them, or did, until the suburban tracts took over most of the old farmland in recent decades. If anyone would like more info, Google "I-houses kniffen" or write me.

Love it. I used to include abandoned buildings in landscape paintings for the same reason you photograph them. My mother wrote about them - this from the 1960s: The old captain's grey house sits weathered and beaten on its shingle of bay shore. It is at one with the salt fog and shifting moods of sea scape. Will it be surrounded by ill-advised "up to date" summer cottages? Oh, grey house - I care, but can do nothing.

Beautiful. I can just visualize GM & GP and Mom & Dad and some of my cousins getting together so many years ago in a house very similar to this one. It brings back so many memories.

These old and abandoned homes have a wonderful chance to be celebrated by you. Before they fall into emptiness, the joy and wonderful memories they rekindle in so many people is probably their last purpose and gift. They have through you a wonderful ambassador! Congratulations for this very beautiful AC ! DB

Exceptional AC, Sheila! There is no place like home, which this photo shows so well. How many celebrations were celebrated, and misfortunes overcome within the frame of this house? The crest of the snow covered hill has a great impact in setting off this weathered structure against the beautiful blue sky.

Thank you for sharing. I also love pictures of old houses and barns. If I had the finances I would love to get one of the old houses add some paint and fix it up. Would make a good get away place where one could get to where there is no Phones, no TV. Great picture and thanks again for sharing.

Congratulations for this superb AC Sheila,a lot of things make this photo a great one. It's striking for me in France to see how many beautiful houses and barns are left abandoned through your country, it's so sad ,they represent the America I learned to love through novels, paintings and movies when I was still a child!

Sad how we let buildings go and built boxes that aren't holding up for more than a few years before they start falling apart.

Imainge the generations that lived here, the times they celebrated, the times they cried and the times they laughed...

And so, one season after another, our history fades into oblivion.

Hi,

That house is SO much like the one we lived in in PA including the tree in the yard! The structure is slightly different in the front than ours was but definitely from the same era. Congratulations on the AC!

I have a very old photo of the family home of my grandparents in Dayton, Oregon that, with the exception of the snow, looks so much like this home. It gave me quite a feeling when I saw this one.

Thank you for sharing it with us.
