Girard, Illinois

As I left from Nilwood I drove towards the town of Girard to find the interstate and get home. On the outskirts of Girard was this house.

I love this house.

Out of all the houses I've photographed, this is the one I would love to drop a bunch of money in and redo it, its just a great house.










I think this windmill is missing some parts..


Outbuilding...


The back porch


I found this news paper in the bushes by the outbuilding, I wonder what was happening on November 2, 1978


Whats left of these curtains were a little creepy when it was blowing in the wind...


Door has seen better days




Obligatory peeling paint picture


I went inside and saw the staircase....and I loved it.




The house was full of issues of the New York Times, sort of odd in Central Illinois...this is from April 6, 1980


Left behind clothes


I don't know or want to know whats in that jar...


I feel like that is a huge light bulb..


Stuff...and things


Squatters?


This house had a lot of nice built ins


Eeeee! Pocket Doors!!!!!


I always get confused when its time to breed my cows


The front room...I loved it.


Thats a pretty snazzy chair


More left behind clothes, I'm going to go out on a limb and say an elderly woman was one of the last inhabitants of this house...


A look to a field




I love love love this staircase...




Going up the stairs..


A room full of crap


Straight from Alaska plus a few decades..


Well, its a room and thats a bed, so its a bedroom




a look down the stairs


The City Boy, I wonder if it was a good read


another room full of stuff


A shoe without its mate


November 1960






It looks like cacti were a problem society was facing...


Grain Elevator Recipt




Look, its a tree..


The copy write on this was 1921




This made me sad....:(


I just pointed my camera up the attic stairs but did not venture up


Looks like some sort of Constitutional book




What is left of an old barn


Leaving the old house....I bet it was a wonderful place back in its day.
