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.
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
Yes, it was Todd. 🙂 Thanks.
sounds very interesting..good it was saved by kind people
I agree. Thanks for your comment.
Looks a fascinating place – however, it’s the lattice work of winter branches against the sky in the surrounding trees that I really like 🙂
This stoic little house looks like it was always there Seth. I love it.
It does, doesn’t it? Thanks.
Love the black and white pictures. They really capture the passage of time that the house has seen. It’s nice that it was saved and preserved.
Yes. I am glad they saved it. Thanks.
I’m glad the house was saved, and I really like your photos of it.
Thanks so much! 🙂
I immediately thought of ALONE ON A HILL..and this song:
The Fool on the Hill
By: Beatles, The
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 . . .
That’s perfect. Thanks for sharing.
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 😉
It does seem lonely but in the spring and summer they open it up and it has folks inside again.
Thanks for sharing . As always well presented .
That’s very kind. Thanks.
I can hear the stories from the photographs. I can’t imagine the muses that linger through the house.
Thanks so much. Very kind.
Some great pictures of a lovely building which seems to be full of photo opportunities
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”
I’ll check it out. THanks.
It looks like a log home…and lovingly maintained. Peaceful, too, freshly chopped firewood and a paddock nearby? Do the ‘owners’ have plans?
It’s owned by Hamilton county. It’s in a park. They make it look like someone lives there like they would have in the late 1700s
Nice to see tax dollars at work. I could easily take up residence…and fill the paddock with a few sheep and goats! 🙂
What a great rental space for private weddings and such!!
Very nice photos as always!!!
What a beautiful place. I would love to live there.
Me too. 👍
Looks like a haunted cabin….yikes.Interesting story!
I haven’t heard any ghost stories about it.
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.
You too. Thanks Viveka.
Totally a scene for a creepy, gothic movie…. or a few episodes of American Horror Story 🙂
You watch that show? Todd does. It’s a bit too creepy for me.
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. 🙂
What a nice interestin house wwi and wwii passed but it till stands even now what a great wonder.
Yes. Also the revolutionary war, the war of 1812.
Ahh what a cute ole house on the hill!! It would be neat to see the inside too!!
Yea agree. Thanks Lisa.
I think you’re going to make me go broke, Seth. I love these pictures! “Side View” is my favorite.
Thanks Eliz. Let me know when you get your order. I hope you like them.
The side view shot is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing, and for liking my blog, http://gratitudeequation.wordpress.com!

I have nominated YOUR BLOG as Very Inspirational
Please visit clbolinbooks.wordpress.com to receive your award.
Thank you. That’s very kind of you.
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.
I bet. Glad you have places to explore.
Intriguing! Is this near the bridge with the ghost? Love the shots!
No not really. It’s about 30 miles away.
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
Thanks I will. 🙂

Robyn, Thanks so much.
I love the texture you captured in those first two. Beautiful. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
What a fantastic find…. Beautiful and probably very much fun to experience… 😀
Thanks so much Keli.
Fascinating. Amazing shots! 🙂
Almost has an eerie feel to it.
OM! So many comments…I doubt you need another…. but I am intrigued to know what is it made of?
It’s wood. I am not sure what kind of wood though. Let me ask Todd.
