The View From Here - Various thoughts and travels
Sad to see a nice little home just abandoned. Probably an interesting story behind it.
I would like to think there was an interesting story behind it. Truth be told there probably isn't. This one was in the middle of nowhere in the Alberta badlands.
I would expect kids got jobs and moved away.Parents passed and no immediate family moved in.There's an old 2 story farmhouse across the road, the matriarch of the family died and it has sat empty for 20 years.Maybe they thought it would be too much trouble to rent.
You are likely right. You see places where people used to live and I kind of wonder what the back story is. A lot of people left smaller communities to move to bigger ones, some farms got absorbed by other farms. I am always slightly curious as to what might have happened.
