A couple of weekends ago, while I was at my parent's house, my brother and I got bored watching football so we ventured over to this old house about a mile away from our house. This place has been abandoned ever since I can remember. My grandparents told me that some of our relatives used to live there. The house is the epitome of a fixer-upper, but it has gorgeous bones. Apparently, lots of people have tried to buy this house to do just that, but the current owners won't sell. It's a shame to let the house just fall in - you can tell it was well built, but I fear it won't be around in the next decade or so. Here's hoping it finds an owner that can make it the awesome house it once was. Here are a few photos I snapped, while we were there.

This is the general store across the street. I'd love to go inside this place!
Doesn't this remind you of a scene from Gone With the Wind
Front entrance. Love the ceiling!
Side living room. Same thing on the other side.
One of the downstairs bedrooms. Love the pink color. Lots of trespassers have come and gone...and left their mark.
The windows are so tall.
One of the places that has the worst damage.
The upstairs in in surprisingly good shape. Bedroom upstairs. What a view.
