The Farmhouse on Till Road

 

Near the end of 2000, I discovered this abandoned farmhouse on Till Road, west of Hillegas Road in rural Allen County, Indiana. Snow was knee deep, and I spent a couple hours that day photographing it. As I was working, an old woman came up to me and wanted to know what I was doing. She told me she used to live there, and still owned it, though she now lived in a new house down the street. She was fine with me photographing, so I went back a few times the next summer.

In addition to the old house, there was a barn with a basketball hoop. In 2008, someone on my Facebook page emailed to ask if I had photographed the inside. I had not, because the house had always been locked up, but it no longer was, so I went back to make some photographs of the interior.

The house was demolished in 2009.
