Abandoned-A glimpse into the past

Sometimes it feels a little like Archaeology.  Uncovering the past, simply by driving

the backroads.  They are out there; old farmhouses, one-room schools, even churches.  They have all “given up the ghost” as it were.  The reason that people were held to that place is what intrigues me.  When you come upon an old schoolhouse, with schoolbooks from the 1960’s, or names written on the chalkboard from 1974,  you want to know the who, the what, and the why of these places.  I shoot photos of these places to document them before they are gone.  If you are reading this now, you probably have a similar interest or curiosity.  Enjoy these photos, some I have found some history pertaining to them, others are an open-ended question.
