Remains of a beautiful time, long past.

Today is Tuesday and I am joing
Tom with Tom's Tuesday's treasures.
Just spent another week and 1/2 without a computer.
Received repaired, hopefully, my computer from Dell after 2 techs came to my home and 2 trips via Fed-Ex to Dell.
Hope it is fixed for good.
Pass this red-roofed barn everytime I drive this way. It is way off in the distance and I don't know how to get to it.
I like it however.
This home was once one of the most beautiful homes in our town.
Built in what is now the center of town and many things surround it and it is no longer wanted here. 

Located in Bardstown, Kentucky, the historic Anatok plantation house was built in 1847.  By the time you read these words and see the pictures that follow, it may have been torn down.  These are photos of its final days, waiting as the wrecking crew guts it, tearing it down, brick by brick.  If the current court order is pulled, the house will again face demolition. 

 Owned by the school, Bethleham High School, needs this out of the way for parking.







 This plantation once set in the center of a large estate. The rounded area had beautiful stained glass windows as it was the family chapel.
 Those windows were placed in the new hospital built just outside of town as the home and hospital were both owned by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and this once housed the sisters.

I have taught many a First Aide and CPR class in this beautiful old home when it was used by the hospital.

This reminds me of “Big Yellow Taxi” a song written, composed, and originally recorded by Joni Mitchell in 1970. The song goes..."They paved paradise And put up a parking lot." Sounds like progress to me. Thanks for documenting the loss of this treasure. Peggy I hope that your computer issues are behind you and that we see back again.

It's truly a shame to lose this piece of history. I'm glad you have the photos in case it loses the court battle.
