Drive through farm and ranch country in Texas and you will see many abandoned buildings. These buildings were the homes, barns and out buildings of those that once made their living by the land. Some of the buildings were the homes of the workers for the land owners. I’d love to know the history of these buildings. What happened to cause the families to just pack up their belongings and leave? Did they try to hang on to their homes as long as possible? Did they move to the big city or just to the closest small town?
Do you ever wonder about the history of old, abandoned buildings and the people that lived or worked there?
