Roughing it in Ruffin

Farmhouse, Ruffin, S.C.

 But a house that has done what a house should do,
a house that has sheltered life,
That has put its loving wooden arms around a man and his wife,
A house that has echoed a baby's laugh and held up his stumbling feet,
Is the saddest sight, when it's left alone, that ever your eyes could meet. 

by Joyce Kilmer

I should do a little better jotting down exact locations of places I take pictures of but I believe this old farmhouse was in Ruffin, S.C. Imagine all the stories that happened in this old house.


  1. It looks like it has seen a lot of years!

    1. Yes, but at least it is still here. I passed it years ago and it looked just the same.

  2. It looks pretty sad, but it is not yet past redemption.

    1. It does. Still, it is in the middle of nowhere so hard to imagine who would buy it and invest in the repairs.


Leave me a comment. They make me strong.
