Elizabeth at http://thelastdoordownthehall.blogspot.com/ likes to introduce us to some of the older establishments in her area, as she has today.
Which has prompted me to post a homestead we came across when showing the area to our guest this week.
In our travels we went through Ideal, SD we are talking a small town, and I think this is the last of it, because there wasn't anything else to see there!
Notice how they curved the roof line up, and how close they built it to the ground!...there were 4 other to the ground buildings on the place, it is being used for pasture now.
In the day though, this was a large prosperous family.
They had a lot of wood in this house...hard to come by and expensive!
Not to mention several windows.
Then the cost to have raised the other buildings, so this family was doing well.
Or brought wealth with them from the East.
Our guest were a SIL Donna, her daughter our niece Kristy and her daughter our grandniece, Kendyl...they had a big time as did we..all together a whirlwind of 4 days!!
BUT, I just discovered...I DON'T work tonight!!! and I thought I did..so YAY!
thanks for dropping by.
