Abandoned Farmhouse On Adams County Road 1100N #5

Graffiti covers a lot of the walls in the bedrooms of this abandoned 19th Century farmhouse on County Road 1100N, just east of County Road 100E in Adams County, Indiana.

This wall's graffiti was written by several girls, probably teens, who put their names, the dates they were there, and the names of the boys they were in love with! One girl drew a tombstone that says "Love Hurts" and another drew a cross wrapped in a thorny vine with "Lust" written in a heart drawn in the center of the cross.

• Amanda Jean Franz was here March 31, 1995 and loves Richard Koldyke and Phil Bodle.

• Jennifer James Franz was here March 31, 1995.

• Mandie Franz was here November 17, 1996 and loves Richard Koldyke and Phil Bodle. Mandie signed the drawing of the tombstone.

• We are #1

• Lisa Mowery was here November 17, 1996 and loves Phil Bodle Always -N- 4-ever. Lisa signed the drawing of the cross.

I graduated from high school in 1994. The kids who wrote this are probably just a couple of years younger than I am. They would have been around 30 years old when I photographed their probably long-forgotten messages. I wonder what they would say today?
