"Just Drop Me Off Here...."

From David Burke:

While taking the most around-about way to the Maker's Mark distillery in Loretto, Kentucky, two friends and I drove past this old house in the rural town of Lawrenceville. Being a passenger, I asked Scott to PLEASE stop and back up. He kindly obliged and I then snapped this one picture from the car window, and we continued on our way.

I was not quite sure as to why I found this house so intriguing. Perhaps because it is not like anything I might come across in New England. It does not seem to be ransacked or vandalized. I wanted to say "just drop me off here and I think I'll start afresh."

House. Lawrenceville, KY

Well, I am back home but this little house still stays on my mind.


  1. This house reminds me of some places I saw in Kenansville, North Carolina, 10 years ago. I believe some of them were former slave quarters.

  2. This is a slave house. Slam dunk, Dave. Makes me want to run out and protect it! Obviously, someone is taking care of it, though. The roof is in phenomenal condition and the wood appears to be in good shape, too. Very excellent picture!

  3. Thanks for the expert input, Lori. It's in quite remarkably good condition, isn't it?

  4. Yes! I'd love to see what the interior looks like!
