An abandoned farm just south of Madison Wisconsin. Calendars throughout the barn and house were all indicating that this old farmstead was abandoned in February of 1987.

  • Thank you NormaJe…it’s always kind of sad to come across a place that’s been abandoned. They’re such quiet lonely places. How are things going for ya NJ? Was good to hear that ya get to go home for Christmas!

    Too bad it’s abandoned…it’s a beautiful barn and a beautiful setting.

  • Thank you Dot…..…it’s always kind of sad to come across a place that’s been abandoned. They’re such quiet lonely places. It’s unfortunate that yet another wood barn will eventually be lost. This old farmstead is about a 1/2 mile beyond the Madison city limits. Wont be long before the city moves in around it and the old place will be wiped off the map like it was never there…..

    AWSOME capture..love barns ,Sad that someone lost there home .and what a beautiful place .:)

  • Thank you Webbie…i’m guessing that the folks that once lived here left in February 1987 from looking at the calendars all around the place. With Madison expanding as much as it is this place will be torn down eventually seeing how it’s less than a mile from the city limits and expansion heading in that direction

    sad so many country homes are torn down are left un attented..so many homeless would love these homes..even fix them up..to many jobles and homeless and decent people …all be cause of Goverment greed.When Jesus comes Things will in prove..praying it not that far off…but I know some things have to happen frist:)

  • The house on this farmstead is in really bad shape. It’s beyond being made live-able again with part of the home falling down. Yes indeed…it is sad that homes are abandoned…most likely taken back by the bankers and then leave them empty and falling into decline when there’s so many people without homes living on the streets. When i was out one night riding my bicycle around downtown Madison i was shocked to see soooooo many homeless people sleeping on the benches around the capital square…and then we have all of these bank repossed homes sitting empty…something just does’nt make any sense in all of this…..

    I think we need some one with a heart for America in office instead of the greeded ones we ended up with..that both dec and rep. go out and get some one who lived the life we are living …a cut in goverment control..im sure there some high IQ people in the normal people than those that have never did with out…but then im a country hick lol what do I know lol

  • I dont think it matters to much where we live as far as what we know lol…..i’m a city boy and i cant figure out this corel stuff and you sure dont seem to have any problems lol… Getting someone in office that actually has a heart….fat chance of that ever happening because ya gotta be a crook to be a politician lol…..
