Holly, Kansas

I love small towns because you find some of the most wonderful small buildings like this one. I would love to know the history behind this building. This was taken, as the title suggests, in Holly, Kansas on my way to Colorado. Most people try to get through Kansas as quickly as possible. I always try to linger a little while.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Ah, yes. Americana. Nice nostalgic capture here (even though it's from an era pre-me).

When a friend and I made the trek to Kansas City from Dallas recently, on the Tulsa to KC leg I took minor roads instead of I-44 and US 71. I thought I would capture some scenes like the one you did.

Nope. Just a bunch of flat eastern Kansas, with no neat old downtowns or anything like that.

that is a cool shot, and in b/w too. I like to take photos of old buildings.

I always thought it was KC, that everyone tryed to get though quickly esp. at nite :)

U have a great weekend too!

Hi Mike, thanks for your visiting.
I too am always curiosity to know what history is hidden behind some old buildings, walls, things… If the walls could speak!

Terrific barn/mercantile building. Its so rustic and the hayloft and crooked door just add to the middle America flavor.
