Went out to Ravanna today and got some close-ups. If you didn't catch the other thread, here's a link... http://forums.ghosttowns.com/showthread.php?t=14998

Kinda ironic- I went to a nearby farm house to inquire about permission and what do you know... another "ghost farm house" (not yet posted).

Here are some images from today...

Great pictures, Jason. I loved that picture of the arch. Can you imagine the effort that went into its construction? I found an old building with a stone roof, it was amazing. If I can find the pic, I'll post it. Thanks again for sharing your pics......Speedy

Thanks! The arch used to have bars in it. It was the jail cell.

The work effort to build something like this by hand must have been incredible. I got a close up of one stone to show the tooling marks.

I found it, and tried to download it but it exceeded the file size allowed. Any suggestions would be appreciated.....Speedy

Jason, thanks for the tip to re-size it. This is a building next to the old courthouse in the West Texas town of Stiles. I was impressed on how they made the roof out of stone.....Speedy
