This is an old house down on one of the main strips in Waxahachie, TX. Many of these old homes have been restored, they call them Gingerbread Houses and offer tours throughout the year, hopefully someday I will make it for one of the tours. This old house is in dire need of restoration, it was a mess. The tree nearest the center is taking over the concrete walkway, a great example of nature vs. man, and yes I got close-up shots of it :)

It looks pretty scary to me, would make a great old haunted house, except it is not safe inside or outside, much decaying of the wood, the whole front porch in front of the door was gone, you coud see underneath the house.
