Old Buildings: Tear Downs or Tourist Attractions

Cee Neuner’s Fun Foto Challenge – Old Buildings

I’m squeezing in at the last second on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. She convinced me that I don’t have to write much. If you want to see more pictures, (and writing LOL) I included links to my original articles.

Bob’s Barn

For some reason this gorgeous relic was torn down the week after I took this picture to make way for a grove of trees.

Inside Bob’s barn. I’m not sure why there was a bed springs in there. It does rain in CA.

Down the road are more of the same. They have stood the test of time from the early 1900s.

Biltmore Estate

The Biltmore mansion, on the other hand, still standing since 1889, is the largest privately-owned house in the United States, at 178,926 square feet.

Residents and guests read in style

The lighting wasn’t perfect on these 1900s replica guests, but you can see the beauty of the room. Nobody, even Bob, is going to tear this old building down any time soon.

pile of rubbish
Coffee Run Mission Site, also known as Coffee Run Church and St. Mary’s Church, is a historic mission church site and national historic district located at Hockessin, DE.

St. Mary’s Church, which may date back to 1750 has seen better days. Bob might want to tear it down, but it is protected.

Inside St. Mary’s Church

The Featured Image is the church at Jamestown, established in 1607 and rebuilt in 1639 is one of the first buildings built by colonists. It gets constant care, sorry, Bob.

Thanks for hosting this Fun Foto Challenge, Cee, and for encouraging me to post more than one post per day – “write less.” It’s sooooooo hard! Please join in by clicking the link. Your comments are always treasured, too.

CFFC runs weekly challenge starting every Tuesday.

Look for Cee Neuner’s story as a blog challenge hostess to come out tomorrow on my blog. I’m so excited that she is sharing it with us. 🙂

    • I do too. It’s a little like yours only covered in California dust instead of Oregon moss. I love old barns. I didn’t get out to take pictures of the old school houses, but I’ll try to do that tonight. You will love them.

    • You definitely should. Some of the greatest artists and photographers get their inspiration from what others throw away or consider no longer attractive or useful. Art gives everything new life. 🙂

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
