Built in the 1800s, this house started its life as a farm house. It resided on a property owned by Mr Livingston that consisted of his families home with a slave quarters house (will be shown at a later date), and this home which was a farm house. The 500+ acre property he owned was a striving agricultural location for the area. Mr Livingston was a famous and popular man for the area in it times featured in many papers and was president of many clubs. In the late 1900s, the property sold to a school right near by. While the school owned it, they rented out the properties to other families. In 1984, this entire property was listed as an historical site due to it long history and was put on the national historical registry. In the year 2000, the school decided to put the property up for sale due it bankrupt issues. People renting the homes had to leave b/c of this. This home as well as the other 3 (which I will show at a later date) were then boarded up and left to rot. A developer bought the land with intents to demolish and rebuild but b/c the homes are on the national historical registry, they can not tear these homes down. The current developer now leaves this home to rot even more. More local history rotting away like always. I honestly thing developers due this on purpose. They buy properties like these that they know that can not tear down. They just let them sit there for years until they are deemed unsafe and then are forced to be torn down. This is what drives me to explore these places! Enjoy and video to follow.
