Forsythia 156005 140 The house that "Was" on my farm either
The house that "Was" on my farm
Sadly this house was way beyond restoreation I think it was
built around 1910 or 11 and it burnt down shortly after I
bought the farm. It caught on fire late in the evening as we
was finishing up burnning the place off. The fire started on
the sideing on a corner and once it began burnning it went
up very very fast it was white hot.
Re: The house that
when was new was wery nice :-)
Re: The house that
Yes it was, it had to of taken a great deal of carpentry
skill to put up a home like that. It was rather strange and
sad seeing it burn down within a few minutes time that
evening. It was a landmark out there for many years.
Re: The house that
Where was this house? I saw something like it in E Oregon
years back. There is an old house with that tower like
structure in my home town.. An old lady unmarried lived in
it with her brother and they made a living from feeding hogs
and gardening the small acreage. The inside was like when it
was built probably in the late 1890's. After she died
someone bought it and the small acreage it was on. When they
were ready to move into it, the new owner came to the
grocery store (which was still open at that time) and asked
if anyone knew where the electric box was to turn on the
electricity. The people in the store laughed and then told
the new owner that the house had never been wired for
electricity. There weren't even lines to the house.
Re: The house that
That house stood north of Billings OK about 7 miles. Though
this one had elec in it though I am sure it was added later.
