Long Lost in Levy
From where I stood on the quiet rural road that leads to this place, it was hard to imagine this home as it once might have looked. The tattered screens, missing windows and leaning foundation paint a crooked grin on this broken memory.
The exterior marks from years of weather and neglect tell a sad story but just inside, there is a different tale this place has to tell.
[Doorway from common room to kitchen]
[The view from the front porch. I suspect it looks much like it did for a family here so many years ago]
Almost as if it had a secret to protect, the surrounding woods enveloped and hid this place from view for more years than the locals can remember, until the property was recently cleared, uncovering this incredible glimpse into another time.
What memories does she keep? Is there anyone left to recall them? There must be a story here, I just wish I knew it.
“Sometimes even the ugliest of things turn out to be beautiful, if you look at them the right way.”
[Levy County, FL c. late 1800’s]
