What stories unfolded on this old porch?  Did a lady sit there while sewing or shelling beans?  Did the family gather on warm evenings for a bit of quiet time, looking out across their land?    If company came by, were they offered a chair and some lemonade?

Not many old homesteads had porches this fine.   A large porch that wrapped half way around the house, it must have been the rancher’s pride.  Even in ruin, it still has grace.
