This magnificent old two storied home sits on a hill beside a gravel road in Bollinger County Missouri. It sits near a modern brick ranch style home that has obviously replaced it. It seems a shame for such great workmanship to slowly deteriorate and eventually fall down.

    thi is a stunning building, bet its not safe though

  • Thank you I think they have “stuff” stored in it. It looks pretty sturdy yet but as you can see there are borads missing so it will deteriorate fast if they don’t fix it up a little.
