Oh, the stories this house could tell if walls could talk. There's not much left of the old homeplace; the siding and tin roof have seen better days.
This house has been a landmark for many years along Highway 471 in Brandon. I haven't researched the property to see who owns it. My guess is that it's either tied up in a family estate or someone is patiently waiting for expansion of the highway.
I stopped my car on the side of the road to take the photo. While sitting there, one of Brandon's finest pulled up behind me to make sure I didn't need assistance. I flagged him on by and thanked him for stopping.
Thanks to the Brandon Police Department and ALL our men in blue for keeping us safe!
