The Brindle homestead

 

In 2012, I found an abandoned farm on Brindle Road, west of Coverdale Road, in southwest Allen County, Indiana. There was a small house, several barns and sheds, and a lot of toys left in the yard. The main barn had a partially missing sign that said "Brindle Home." The house was surrounded by a beautiful wrought-iron fence.

Most interestingly, there were a lot of childrens toys scattered around the yard. Several fairly new looking bicycles were piled up in front of the fence, and a really cool looking pedal-car sat amidst overgrown weeds nearby. There was a swing set and slide, and a Little Tykes play house. Except for the old swing set, this stuff was not old or broken, it looked to be only a few years old, at most. I wonder why it was all left behind?

In November of 2014, I drove past the Brindle Homestead and found that the house and barns had all been demolished.
