Well, here we go again, another installment of "Forgotten America." I came across this little town and could not resist taking several photographs. There were several blocks of structures in this condition. Yes, there were still several people living in the town.

    looks like rain isnt much of a factor to these dwellings, luckily there no local building codes /enforcement to deal with like in Tulsa county.

    Thank you very much for the kind words miKKoChristmas11, glad you enjoyed it. My idea of a vacation is not like most peoples. Just give me a camera and some desolate country and I am a happy guy.

    Perhaps just a bump in the road and he is waiting for a smoother ride. As he said above, the road goes on forever.

    I could sit and gaze at these kinds of things for days - imagining what they were like in their early splendor; the "busy-ness" of the couple who may have lived there -- mom hanging laundry on the line, the children playing about while chickens roamed the yard; a dog barking, or a lazy cat just lounging around. Beautiful photographs!
