The Money Place

This old home place was abandoned in the 1960’s when the elderly brother and sister (surname Money) who lived here became unable to take care of themselves and were forced into a nursing home. Having never married, with no children, the property was auctioned off.
What remains is not as much as was once present. A number of small farm building show up on the earliest aerial photos. In the woods surrounding the farm there are the remains of well used buggy tracks, a partial stone dam, and a natural spring which has been lined with stone.
Despite being in use in the 1960’s, the home never had running water, electricity, or a phone line.

As of 2020, the barn has collapsed and been removed, and thieves have stripped the house of much of it’s internal wood. The bedroom wall has also started pulling loose from the rest of the house due to water damage. The house will likely fall over in the next couple years.
