On the Backroads of Madison … {Madison, Va. Photographer}

My husband and I found this old homesite in Madison County a year ago. I didn’t explore the home too much but it had an outhouse and for some reason that cracked me up so we definite stopped.

Since I was wandering around this area recently I decided to stop again. When I went back I expected to see this old car still on site and the house basically standing.

But what I found was just … sad. The house had been ransacked and was falling apart even more. The car was missing. Plates and other furniture was strewn outside around the homesite.

I checked the tax records, and realize the lady passed away in 2010 in Northern Virginia at age 96 (wow!), but it doesn’t answer my question about the site itself. It’s right on the edge of a Virginia Wildlife Management Area … when did they leave? Why did they leave? Why did they leave with so much stuff remaining, including the old car? What happened to the old car?
