The Brick House

The Brick House

Along a rural stretch of US Highway 65, north of Sheffield, lies an abandoned farm place of brick and mortar.  In my 25 plus years of cruising past its location it always beckoned to me.  During the summer months one could just see parts of the residence do to the thick overgrowth of the surrounding vegetation, consisting mainly of trees and vines.

The barn was next to impossible to view but one could get a glimpse of its roof amongst the tree canopy.  As the years past, some subtle changes could be noticed with the brick house.  A window would come up missing slipping from its rotten frame and crashing to the ground a new hole could be seen in the roof.  Then in the last two years one time was hastening its demise, one could see the porch was facing its closing stages until one day it was collapsed and detached from the rest of the house.
