Q: Story of the week

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This is the inside of an abandoned house that stood on my childhood property for over 120 years. I spent many long hours inside these walls as a child pulling up floor boards, and pretending it was magic. :)

This photo was taken just a few hours before the house was demolished due to disrepair.

Perhaps adding to the allure and mystery of this house were the amount of butterflies that seemed to call it home, especially on summer afternoons.

...Always landing on the windowsills, and walls, as seen in this photo.

    This shot captures not only the house abandoned but the missing inhabitants as well. There is the essence of the missing story of those that dwelt there. Very well done!
