I often run across old farmhouses like this one, exposed after a pine plantation has been clear-cut.

They’re usually near the end of their existence and sometimes they’re full of the remants of past lives.

Judging by the items in the house, it’s probably been at least thirty years since anyone was here.

  1. I always wonder about the people who lived in these old houses… How did they feel when they first moved in? What were their lives like when they lived there? Where did they go? …

    It looks as though there’s a lot of good wood that could be repurposed.

  3. I have seen this happen in Fitzgerald, GA a lot. The parents pass on, their kids moved away years ago and have no interest in their parents old property or their things. They bury their parents lock up their home and go back to wherever they are living. Usually the property is sold by the city for property tax due. This house just happen to be in the country.

  4. Abandoned is not the word — looks like they left in a hurry.

    Makes you wonder what happened to the last tenant.
