Puzzled Friday~


(enlarge for a better view)




During a road trip I took last summer, 
I had to stop and go explore this stone house.


I'd like to know its story. 

It seemed as though someone just plunked it in the middle of absolutely no where. 

Out of place~
yet seeming to belong in that wide, open field of nothing.

Thanks for linking up! Wow, what a beautiful place. Looks like the middle of the prairie.

What a great place. I'd want to explore it, too.

Fascinating. It does raise questions. I'm sure there's a heartbreaking story behind it.
At first glance it is like a prairie Stonehenge.

Chloë said...

how cool! as a homeschool project, you should have all your kids write their own story about the history of the house! (and then, of course, post them for us to read!!)

Jordanna said...

Wow! This is cool. I love that you stopped to notice it. It's fun to see the world through your eyes [as much as a blog allows] :) Happy Friday!

Oh how I LOVE this Dawn!
I am always stopping at abandon home steads with those very questions...
imagining the life that once grew there
it is so fascinating!!!
I think I drive my hubby a bit nuts, with all the stopping and photographing of these sights, but his life would be soooooooooooo boring other wise!!! LOL
happy Friday!

love and light

Out on the prairie said...

Comments today took me past those rolls in favorite thing to make, a torment.LOLWondered if maybe this was cultivated around it at omne time and the area just didn't put out,maybe even hayed. The house could have been a home or even way station for a coach line.Very nice shot.

I wonder if the rest of the house burned down, although there isn't any soot remaining on the stone. Reminds me of abandoned castles in Ireland.

Hope said...

The stories behind structures like this would be pretty impressive to hear, I love the old stone walls and I am sure there is a vast amount of history within them.

Rick said...

I think I've been there before - it's not the end of the world, but you can see it from there, right ?

;-)

Nice shot, and it WOULD be interesting to know its story.

Jayne said...

You do have to wonder who put those stones, one by one, into that foundation and the story of who lived there...

Farm Girl said...

I am so glad you stopped and visited that lonely stone house in the middle of the prairie. How far did they carry the rocks to build it? How could they stand the loneliness out in the big land? I read about once about the women who moved to the prairies first, and how some of them took canary's and they were the only friend they had, the author spoke of finding a small canary in a box in amongst his Grandmothers things. She had loved and treasured her friend. I always think of that. We are so blessed to have the internet don't you think?

i've always loved little gems like this... off on the side of the road. so lovely :)

Jen said...

It doesn't have a story? That is so sad. I can only imagine how that came to be! So cool!!

Country Mouse Studio said...

Where is it? It would be fun to find out :O)

darlin said...

If only walls could talk. I also love old pieces of history. I'd like to know who erected this house or if it was a house, what happened to them and what was the rest of this structure made of. If all that's left standing is one rock wall, that shows where the old saying comes from "rock solid" and that this was. Extremely interesting.

Hope you have a magnificent weekend Dawn! Cheers.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Really neat! It's great how things spark our curiosity and intrigue. Bet there's lots of secrets there. Great photo.

Seeing that in person or in a photograph, fills my head with questions!
