old homestead

I was told about this old homestead by a friend of mine.  It’s on her land and she knows how much I love old buildings, so she told me where it was and how to get to it.  I never would have found it unless I knew about it, because you can’t see it from the highway.  Another friend told me that she thinks the log structure is a horse barn, given the width of the doors.  We had an interesting walk around the area.  We also found 3 deer carcasses and 1 cow carcass that we figure were left by wolves.  It just makes sense considering the fact that wolves are being spotted more and more often in this area.  This homestead isn’t very far from my house, maybe 2 miles or less, as the crows flies.

    I love these kinds of photos. But I wonder about the families that lived there… where are their spirits? Gone, or still tending to the farm tasks of the day?

    Great photos. Good luck.

      My thoughts exactly.  I always wonder about the people that lived in the old houses or worked in the old barns that I photograph.  I wish I could track down photos of these buildings from when they were in use and well kept, but I wouldn’t even know where to start.  All I know is every one has a history, and that fascinates me.
