The Old Vanlandingham Home

The former home of a powerful and wealthy family in my community. I'm in the midset of finding out all the history of this place as well as its age. The bank next door bought it and will soon be tearing the home down. They've attempted to give it to me. However, the size and condition of the house makes it nearly 100K to move. I was only able to photograph the outside today but the bank will be giving me a key early next week. It's nice having someone's blessing to photograph a place (much better than sneaking around...not that any of us here would do that).

I remember visiting Mrs. Vanlandingham as a youngster. She was nearly 100 at the time and still living alone. I recall her having the prettiest roses and vegetables in the back yard.
