Late 1800s Farmhouse by TigerOfSpirit Late 1800s Farmhouse by TigerOfSpirit
I'm an amateur photographer (and that's probably giving me more credit than I'm due lol), it's really more of an occasional hobby than any sort of serious endeavor.

This is my grandparent's old home in Burns City, Indiana. A very old Midwest farmhouse built circa 1890s/1900s.

Originally it had no bathroom facilities, only an outhouse. A bathroom was eventually built after my grandfather's health began to fail.

The windows are made of antique glass and it has a tin roof that has rusted to a copper color over the passing years.

At one time, there was a large tool shed and a smoke house directly behind the house. My grandfather was primarily a cattle farmer, although he did raise some crops to provide for his family and to feed his livestock.

This photograph is a personal favorite of mine. My grandparents are long since passed. However, the house, a mere shell now, still remains... if only briefly. The family has finally decided to tear it down. For this reason, I am thankful that I captured it on film.

Hope someone out there enjoys it :)
