An Old West Virginia Homestead (USA).
22-FEB-2008

An Old West Virginia Homestead (USA).

Even the massive Interstate 79 can't dwarf this old homestead that is situated below,
and right next to the fareway. (Photo taken from shoulder of highway.)
I'm not sure how long this working farm has been situated in this spot, but
do recall that when I was in grade school my father would comment,
as we drove by, that he'd like to own it (could be 70 years old or older).
It stood vacant for a number of years, but is now being worked again. There are cows to the
left of the big house.

Looks like it was quite the place in its day. That's a big house even by today's standards.
Nice find and photo Carol.

Appears to be a very roomy house and I am so glad that it is being lived in once more. It will look better in the spring when things green up, so will we all.
