Let’s take a trip back in time… To an old homestead I found in The Green Swamp where I felt like I was transported back to another time. When homesteaders lived here by an old railroad grade in the early to mid-1900’s.
When I first discovered this place I saw a really nice painted sign at the site depicting what the area had looked like at one time. I saw a couple of abandoned vehicles by an area where they must’ve kept livestock. I searched around extensively and could tell that this was a large property as I found lots of remnants scattered about.
It took me sometime to find the ruins still left from the homestead. Those were in the woods by the vehicles it was just heavily overgrown back there which makes them hard to see at first. I found an old forest road that runs by the ruins and it crosses over the railroad grade. Perhaps they used this road to get onto their property.
I enjoyed exploring around this area and experiencing the history that still remains. I hope that it will remain there for many years so that others can experience it as well. I would like to find out more about this place if you have any information on it feel free to comment below. It would’ve been a nice place to live here as the surrounding wilderness is beautiful. Beyond the homestead is a large network of forest roads, who knows what else is could be out there!
