I should add that I have acute awareness that, at one time, this was someone’s place of promise!

Yes, and I love the bleak look, and the reminders of what once was. Other than an animal, nothing will make me pull off the road quicker than the sight of a dessicated old structure like this, so I have a whole collection of them. There are so many stories in these old structures, and so much exquisite detail and indeed such much to be learned from studying them.

And of course, on a personal note, I have taken ownership of my grandparents’ 1905 homestead, which was in only slightly better condition than your subject here, and spent every penny I had saving it. My current and most interesting pandemic project is to seek placement on the National Register of Historic Places for it. I’ve made it through the state vetting process and have their official nomination, so now I’m working on the application paperwork, which is quite an experience.

Thanks,Min,
I love your report on restoring your family’s homestead and the continuing process of gaining placement in the historic place registry!
I’m sure I’m not alone in hoping to see some images !!

Best regards,
Dave
