This is a very old home about 7 miles from our house where two girls lived that I taught at least 25 years ago. At that time it had rockers on the front porch and was a happy place. It needed paint back then, but apparently a house can survive for years and years without a paint job. Now it is a bit lopsided and appears to be going downhill. No one has lived there in years, but the farm land and the barns are still in use with by the owners or someone renting it for their cattle and hay. Right now it is being used.
This is the home where two girls that I taught at least 25 years ago lived. At that time there were rocking chairs on the front porch and there were always children out in the yard. It has been vacated for years now, and as you can see is beginning to list a bit. It is interesting that there was no new paint on the house back then, and it is the same now. Someone that either own the property or rents it (that is my guess) is using the barns and grazing cattle. It is located across the road from New Monmouth Presbyterian Church.
This is not a very good picture, but it shows the outbuildings behind the house. Since I was on private property, I was using caution where I was stepping. There was a fence and I did not go over it...stand on it, yes, but not climb over it. The property is right on the Route 60 so anyone driving by knew exactly what I was doing.
This is the main barn.
And this is the other outbuilding behind the barn. The fence you see is the one I was balancing on to take the pictures. I was good...I didn’t do a face plant again.
This is New Monmouth Presbyterian Church which is across the street from the farm.
