This is Part III of “Ruined Finery” and these shots are of another abandoned farmhouse on the property. Quasi-Victorian in style, one can readily see that the house was quite beautiful in its proportions and detailing. The fishscales of the upper pediment and gingerbread under the eaves are quite interesting, even in their weathered state and some of the shutters on the windows are a handsome touch. It was definitely not an inexpensive house when it was constructed. I do sometimes wonder about the history of the place, the people who lived here and why they had to leave. One day I may muster the courage to open the doors and step inside Ruined Finery.
