During my East Texas Road Trip down HWY 56 from Sherman, Texas to Honey Grove, Texas I came across a handful of abandoned farm houses such as the house in Ector, Texas. But one farm house in particular caught my attention and that was a two story farm house on the edge of town in Windom, Texas.
Abandoned Two Story Farm House East of Windom, Texas
Just past Windom, Texas almost to Honey Grove, Texas there is an abandoned two story farm house that is falling in on itself. The house is a total lose and won’t be around much longer. I am surprised it hasn’t totally collapsed or has been demolished by the owners.
As you can see from the images, the roof has collapsed and has taken out most of the second floor with it. Over the years the owners and scrappers have taken everything of value. The only things left worth saving is the old stone chimney and the wood siding.
This is one of those houses that gives you that creep factor. The area is so quiet its creepy. I think only one vehicle passed by in the time I was there. My only visitor was a black vulture sitting on the chimney.
I can not find any information on the old farm house or the property. I am looking to document this old house’s history and the families that once lived here. If you know anything about this old house, who to contact, or who may haves images of the house in its prime. Please contact me. At some point this farm house will be added to VanishingTexas.com.
About the Images
The images were shot by hand with my Sony NEX-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 as the storms were about to pass through town. I then edited them in Adobe Lightroom. I then post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten the images, and bring out the details in the image. Then removed the dust spots and rain spots. I then used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the image.
