Abandoned Italianate house

Abandoned Wood Framed House

This old house appears to have been neglected for a very long time and probably won’t be around much longer. The rear extension is largely gone and sagging badly. Milroy is eight miles south of Rushville. This photo was taken on July 21, 2009.

An Old Barn

So…I was driving down this side street and saw this barn…in town! But then it is a small town. There was a large truck near the barn but even then if I had known I was going to post it on a blog and now this website, I would have tried for more photos. Taken on July 21, 2009.

At the north edge of town on Railroad Street, sits this abandoned iron bridge. It was built in 1901 by the New Castle Bridge Company and is 94 feet long. The immediate area is overgrown and seems forgotten, the bridge is scarcely seen.
