So many Midwest farmhouses are disappearing with the passage of time...replaced by brick homes, satellite dishes, paved driveways and manicured lawns. I can't say I blame the families of today for modernizing but I do fear that an important part of our history is being lost. I think that the change is being provoked as well by the disappearing family farm. ...replaced by corporate owned conglomerates. Partly out of greed but also necessity with the growing world population to feed.
There is an interesting PBS documentary about this phenomenon : "The Death of the Dream"
Once on the site, you will see a link to "the virtual farmhouse" and it will take you inside with commentary on a farmhouse very similar to the one pictured. Progress is good, without progress, I would not be able to blog! But with this progress, we also have a responsibility to remember our roots.
