This old house is located along Highway 150 in rural Guilford County. Likely, as with the leaves on the trees to its left, the house is not long for this world. It is one of those fixer-uppers that not even Chip and Joanna Gaines (of HGTV fame) would undertake. Yet on this fall day, with the sun low in the sky, it takes on a warm, nostalgic glow. So often these rural homes are loved for generations, until the current generation decides to sell and take off for city life, or the changing surrounding properties make the home obsolete. In the case of the above property, we suspect it is a little bit of both.
Part of the reward we get out of publishing Greensboro Daily Photo is keeping our finger on the pulse of our community. The Greensboro area has always been a nice blend of country living and urban fun. While the urban fun has burgeoned in the last decade, hopefully, there is still room for country living. We are grateful to have this photo, even if it serves only a as memory of the tin-roofed, little yellow house that was.
