ABANDONED FARMHOUSE . . .Found this old abandoned farmhouse this afternoon in Monroe, Tennessee. Quite a history that goes with it. Don't know all the details but am determined to search further. I do know it was build in 1782 on a few thousand acres. Owners were the wealthy land barons of the area. Nothing else around or miles and miles. S couple small additions were added in the 1950's. Property now is a dumping ground for old autos etc. This is only the front of the house. The house is L shaped and the back portion (part of the original house) extends quite far behind.
I have always been fascinated by old houses and barns and outbuildings. Abandoned ones are my very fave. If only this old mansion could talk, what stories it could no doubt tell. I have been told it has some tie to the Civil War but have not found out the facts yet.
As most of you know, I am a big fan of color. The brighter and bolder the color is the better for me. However, that having been said I think there comes a time one must give B & W a try. For myself I find B & W a more difficult genre as not all subjects do well with the transition.
Thanks for looking.
Have a wonderful weekend.
