Once thriving, this South Texas ranch 
("El Rancho Tejano")
now sits empty in Southern Wisconsin.

  9. Wow, this looks so inviting, sure some TLC and mowing, probably lots of mowing, but so very sad to be left family-less. I'm hoping for more of a story, if possible, I'm so curious about it!

  10. Wonder if it might be in an estate or something and no one wants to take responsibility for it. Very sad.

  11. Hmmm, there's that Wisconsin Texas connection again.

  12. I hate to see abandoned houses, and wonder why no one will buy the property, or why the descendants of the family won't keep it up and come live there if possible. So many empty houses! It just makes you wonder about the stories behind them. Love the gate.

  13. The second shot is sad, it needs some loving care! Great shots, enjoy your day!

  14. I did a double take on the Texas in Wisconsin for sure. Neat gate. How sad though it seems to have been abandoned. The house seems to be quite something.

  15. Oh the history it must have though. The gate is open. I'd like to explore some. Best not though. Thank you for visiting my Seedling Mile Good Fence.

  16. What a shame....all that Texas charm going to waste!! Someone should buy it and 'fancy it up'....make it a showcase it once was.

  17. It has a very melancholic feel about it.

  18. Too bad that it is abandoned. Nice looking fences!

  19. Grand gate! Pretty.
    For a second, I would like to contemplate the following:
    I see the comments about the South Texas gate in WI. What about the Wisconsinite in Texas (though North Texas), who is behind this meme? :)

    Peace :)

  22. looks like an amazing place to explore though. I bet the stories it could tell....

  23. I thought you were surely in Texas from the name on the gate. Nice finds!

  24. Oh, abandoned estate; but still wonderful looking fence and house♪

  25. I'm playing catchup...
    I wonder what stories this place holds. Some good and some sad, I imagine.
    Always sad seeing abandoned homestead or businesses.

    Hugs,

  27. I'm always sad to see farms and ranches abandoned. I know there is endless hard work to take care of a farm, so it is not surprising that farm children don't want to keep their parents' farms and the parents become too old to take care of them. And, then, of course there are the developers who offer enough money to create a nice retirement nest egg. Soon, it seems, all farms will be big businesses instead of family farms.
