More Info And Credit

A city order requiring the home to be either rehabilitated or demolished forced the abandoned farmhouse in Bruceville-Eddy, Texas, to be taken down on February 5th, 2015. The house was too expensive to save because it had significantly deteriorated, and many of its original features had been stolen or vandalized.

I’ve been travelling by car from Dallas to San Antonio for more than 10 years, frequently stopping to see my then-girlfriend, who is now my wife, at Trinity University. I would periodically see abandoned buildings on these journeys, but I only gave them a little thought once I came upon a run-down old farm home along I-35 a few years ago, just south of Eddy, Texas. I didn’t know whether the home was abandoned, so I made a mental note to check it out on another trip, but at the time, I needed the right apparel or equipment to do so.

The home was crumbling on itself when I tried to visit last year while on a business trip to Austin due to highway construction near Eddy blocking the exit. I decided to hold off on further exploring until it was colder outside and there was a decreased chance of running into snakes in the grass around the home.

I just got a job offer in the deep South Texas region, so I planned to see the abandoned farm home in Eddy. As I arrived, I saw that the building was about to collapse and would probably be razed by the landlord or the neighbourhood authority shortly. The second story was inaccessible due to the nearly fully ruined floorboards and shaky staircases. In addition, the first level’s ceiling was so badly damaged that it was possible to look through to the second floor.
