Patton's Corner in Indiana

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, we took a little rambling drive...most of which took place in Parke County, Indiana.
This is a little place out in the middle of nowhere. We have passed it numerous times but have never stopped and looked around.

Yesterday we did things differently...we pulled off the road and meandered around through the old implements and tools.

They were so close together that it was near impossible for me to get really good photos, but showing a few of them anyway.

They will at least begin to give you a feel for the place.

All of these photos will enlarge if you click them...they might look better that way but I am not sure.

I will be showing a few more shots from this place in days to come. I could go back there today and enjoy it. There was just more than I could take in. It is just there for you to look at...no one gives a tour or anything. There is a little house/shack that is just full of stuff. Again, could not take it all in.

I see how close together they are. In your second picture, I thought it was one huge thing, but now I see it is probably several different things close together! Maybe they only had a really small space.

It is a shame the implements are so close together...but it's still great that you photographed them so that we could enjoy seeing them.

We pass by a similar place often but have never stopped. Maybe we will stop one day, as you have.

Hi Rose, Isn't it fun to check out 'junk' places like that? When I look at all of that old machinery---it makes me wonder what kind of life they had. Bet they were a big help to farmers for many years...

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm glad you stopped at this "gold mine" of old equipment. This is such a fine collection. Those old steel wheels were so practical... no flats with them! :-)

We always seem to be in a hurry to get where we are going so hubby and I often leave such gems unexplored. Glad you took the time to stop and share.

Rose, thanks for commenting about my surgery. Love this post! The weather station is awesome! And I loved seeing the old machines.

Love all things rusty! All those farm pieces are just great. I want one for our yard, but my husband keeps saying something about mowing . . . :)
