House on a hill

There’s a house on a hill that’s been around for a long while.  It has lived through all the wars.  It has seen this country grow from a few colonies to a major power. Originally from Elizabethtown, it had grown old and neglected.  It was moved and saved by the kind folks of Hamilton County.  Now it rests up on that hill and overlooks a beautiful scene.  No one lives here anymore but it is still visited by many.  Perhaps you too would like to pay homage to that old house on the hill.  It will be happy to share its story with you.

  1. I would love to know the history and the stories behind this house. I like that a couple of your photos show someone in the distance with the house. Very nice series

  2. I immediately thought of ALONE ON A HILL..and this song:
    The Fool on the Hill
    By: Beatles, The
    Lyrics
    Day after day alone on the hill,
    The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still,
    But nobody wants to know him,
    They can see that he’s just a fool,
    And he never gives an answer,
    But the fool on the hill
    Sees the sun going down,
    And the eyes in his head,
    See the world spinning around.

    Well on his way his head in a cloud,
    The man of a thousand voices talking percetly loud
    But nobody ever hears him,
    Or the sound he appears to make,
    And he never seems to notice,
    But the fool on the hill . . .
    Nobody seems to like him
    They can tell what he wants to do.
    And he never shows his feelings,
    But the fool on the hill . . .

  3. the house on hill , it does send chills looking its windows and door shut ..it is so still..can you feel the empitness and the environment..lonely and remote..no sound no echoes..no birds or neighbours..only logs for winter..I am scared but still, I am walking around the house on the hill 😉

  4. Really enjoyed this. Looks like you and I share an appreciation for history. Thank you for stopping by poormanspoet. I would also invite you to visit my other blog oldmainer.wordpress.com and more specifically read “Requiem”

  5. I’m amazed that it stand up .. it look very wear and tear – wonderful gallery again – my pick has to be ”Ready for winter”. Lovely to look at .. nightmare to live in, I guess. Have a great weekend.

      • I only watched the first season, since it’s available to stream on Netflix. Haven’t seen the second season, other than the clip of Jessica Lange singing that one oldie, the title of which escapes me at the moment.

        And, yeah, it is creepy. Every now and then I watch creepy things, though, not as a rule… I’m a big chicken really. There’s something compelling about this show though. And, it hasn’t given me nightmares, so that’s a plus. 🙂

  6. That’s a really old house! We have some really old houses in our town too. They’re kind of like cemeteries — some good smells and stories to imagine. I really like that picture “A place to reflect”. Serene.

  7. I really enjoyed looking at your pictures. It made me feel like I was actually there. My blog is just getting started but feel free to check in on it from time to time
