Old enough to be abandoned and falling apart. LOL. Given how well it’s holding together despite obvious long tern neglect, I’d say at least 50 years old and even 100 wouldn’t surprise me.
In this town, it’s hard to say. There is stuff here from the late 1600s. But, given the design, yeah, 50, 60 years, probably. It’s on a lot close to the river and is across a dirt road from a known haunted house.
Looks skeletal yet has an atmosphere of being alive. Thanks for sharing
Lovely observation. Welcome!

I love this sort of place. Try to imagine the backstory. We have a place near us. It’s looks like a miniature castle ruin set on a hill. It’s an old hunting lodge. Just looks haunted.
Your country’s castle ruins are far more interesting than an abandoned barn here.
Love places like this. It looks seventies with the design…I’ve seen people make houses out of these…
Yep. Ever seen Barnwood Builders on DIY?
No…I’ve never seen that one…that title is new to me.
It’s a crew of good-ole-boys disassembling old barns to rebuild homes with or, rebuilding existing barns. They are out of West Virginia but, have a location in Texas not too far from La Grange:
It is neat…and kinda creepy, all at the same time.
All the stories that it could tell!
I would love to sit there and ask….
Considering how old this area is, it might have a lot to say. Plus, it is across the dirt road from a known haunted house.
Now how COOL is THAT 🙂
Well, the folks that were interviewed over it didn’t think it was cool. I need to find that article, again.
I rather LIKE ghost stories and such. For you see…I believe. 🙂
I walk past this house all the time going to the Riverwalk. It’s about four blocks away from my house.
I also know of two others.
I SOOOOOOOOO believe in ghosts! You be careful walking by there…ya hear
Hauntings are totally real. They get hyped on TV too much but, soul energy is a real thing. Those that pass out of their bodies can frequently hang out in places they are attached to. They may not even realize they are dead.
I don’t intend to chase after any of them. If I went looking for one, I would have a very powerful psychic medium with me for communication. I wouldn’t dare arbitrarily irritate one.
No I agree. We had two ghosts that visited our other house for years. I saw Mary…she was not sure she had passed. We had a conversation…she is gone now.
WOW. Do you know who Mary was?
Yes, Terry’s great-grandmother. She died in the house. She very much loved the house. But it was time she went on to be with her husband and all her children.
OMG, Linda! That is AWESOME. And, you got to talk to her. Not everyone can see and/or hear souls like that. No wonder you write so beautifully. You are very open & receptive. Could Terry hear & see her? How long ago was it, since you are in a different house? And…how old was that house?
We still have the house. Our oldest daughter lives there. No, Terry doesn’t very well. Although, he did hear his favorite Aunt talk to him one time. The house was built in 1906
Wow. How cool! Do you have pictures of it on your site?
No. I don’t know if I have any photos of it. Hummmmmm
Very cool, but I don’t think I would want explore the inside of it!
Yeah. I sure didn’t. It was photographed from a safe distance. I’m more concerned with poisonous critters than I am any ghosties.
Same here! Poisonous critters and creepy crawlie ones!
