Inside the Laurens Rural Ruin

I revisited a rural ruin in Laurens SC. The house is truly locked into the past. There were two front rooms, a rear bedroom, attic, kitchen and another room separated by a covered porch. While this is large compared to many country houses, the layout was telling of its older origins. I can only guess that the separated room was once the kitchen. The lack of a bathroom points to the facilities being in a small building adjacent to the separated room. I enjoy finding places that represent the way people used to live prior to modern housing.

The property also featured several ancillary buildings including a barn, garage, and storage building. These will be featured in another blog.

All 74 pictures of the Rural Ruin are in this flickr set.
