Sycolin Road, 2009

There's ruins of an abandoned house on Sycolin Road that I've been exploring ever since I moved to Leesburg (VA) in 2001. It was built before World War II and apparently used to be a dairy farm. There was a fire at one point, but I don't know if that was before or after the house was abandoned.

It's not much to look at, but it was always a novelty to have this little ruin a cat's throw away from my home. Recently, I noticed there's a lot of construction activity on the property, so I thought it would be a good idea to get a few pictures before it all gets developed.

Edit: Updated info --- the construction nearby is for installation of Dominion Power's electric lines through Leesburg; the land isn't being developed AFAIK.
