On one of my trips to Oklahoma City I decided to take a detour a little farther west on HWY-82 than I normally do. I mapped out a small road trip to the historic small town of Spanish Fort, Texas and then up through the back roads of rural Oklahoma to my destination.
While driving north on FM 677, I came across an interesting old and abandoned farm house. The only residents on the property are the cattle that graze there.
Abandoned Farmhouse Near FM 677 and FM 373 N
While driving north on FM 677 towards Spanish Fort, Texas, I came across a lot of beautiful scenery and few abandoned farm houses along the way. One of the farm houses that I just had to stop at was a little farm house that isn’t near any town and is out in the middle nowhere.
It can be found close to where FM 66 and FM 373 N merge. If you look on the maps, the place shows several other buildings on the property, but those are gone now.
As for the condition of the old farm house, its in decent shape. The original part of the house looks to be solid, but the addition is in bad shape.
What I love about this old house, is the size. The surrounding land is impressive, and the house is so small. The farmer that built this old house may not have had the money to build a large house, but the small foot print gives more land to farming.
Below are some more images of the old house, all shot with a telephoto lens from the fence line…
As to the history, I couldn’t find any information and there weren’t any locals around to find out more…I can’t even tell you what city/county this old abandoned farm house is in. If you know anything about this old house or the property, please contact me…
About the Images
I shot the images with my Sony Nex-3N and Sony SEL55210mm 4.5-6.3 OSS Lens, then processed it with Adobe Lightroom to crop, straightened, and remove dust spots from the image. Then I post processed the image with Topaz Labs Clarity to add more texture, remove shadows, boost brightness and contrast. I then used Topaz DeNoise to remove noise from the image.
