These ruins caught my eye. It appears they’re all that remain of Erick, a lost community situated along the Seaboard Rail line in western Wheeler County. (I’ve tagged the structure as lost, as there is really no way to save it).

Sandra Spires Johnson first identified this as Ben Irwin’s store, but Sandra Sells says it was a different store which also served as the post office. I’m surprised that there was more than one store here.
