The Old House

This Antebellum house was built circa 1860, and had a history in a nice part of the country. The picture was taken in 1946.

During the War Between the States (sometimes called the American Civil War,) it was used, at times, as a hospital when there was a battle nearby. It was, also, used as the County Courthouse at various times over the next few decades.

My mother spent her teenage years in this house, and my grandparents kept it till Grandpa retired in 1962.

When my grandfather sold it to a Doctor and his wife, they had it razed to the ground, and built a large brick Ranch style house in its place. Only some of the brick from the three massive 3-story chimneys survive as part of that new house.
