This once grand home had been abandoned on Highway 64 in Conway for over twenty-five years. When the last owner moved out in 1983, she left the property empty. Several years of weathering and vagrants made this old home become unsafe and dilapidated. We were lucky to get inside before the property owners recently demolished it.

You have a fascinating website and the pics are fine. Keep adding old abandoned buildings and I will keep returning. Of course I am way behind so I may have ot do a Netflix binge style day to look at all of your posts.

One night, a friend and I parked in the lot in front of the auto yard and walked through a muddy field to that house. We thought better of going inside and trudging about rotting floors in the dark but I'm glad we at least stood on the porch and in the doorways. A few months later, I hydroplaned and went off the highway. I came within a few yards of the house. If I were superstitious… It breaks my heart that they tore it down.

So sad it was allowed to reach this state of disrepair. Why not sell it cheap….. if you know someone will preserve its history, restore its beauty. Too many owners aren't concerned about history.

I always loved that house and regret not getting to go inside it before it came down.

They demolished it? I drove by there not too long ago and remembered seeing it there. Wonder when that happened.
