Family Farmhouse Now Houses Goats

Bradford County Florida | c. 1890s

If you take a few moments to look closely at this image, I think you’ll find an incredible story that unravels. The cuts of the hand-hewn boards tell us a lot about its carpenter, who probably harvested the wood for this home from this very property. The original log construction underneath and the seam where this home was extended tells the story of an expanding family, who adapted and grew on this new frontier. Like puzzle pieces, each detail tells a piece of the story. 

I guess walls do talk.
