Just Another Scary Old House


We passed through little Irondale on our tour of the Yellowcreek area on Sunday.  So many stories out of that tour and I decided to begin with this one!  Teresa and Alan, our guides, told us about this little house that sits by the road and we stopped and looked at it.
The beautiful detail to be found on the outside of this home is never seen anymore. I can
imagine it being made by some gentleman for his lovely new wife.  So much pride went into the many little details around every corner.
As I walked around it and took pictures, Teresa said she heard it may have once been a stagecoach stop.  And here it sits, ever so slowly decaying away.     Part of the inside apparently burned and the owners just didn't have enough money to repair it.  Now it is just a scary old house.  To me it is a beautiful example of an age long gone.  If anyone knows anything about it, please let me know!

This was the home of Clyde and Mayme Parsons, my husband's grandparents.

Did they build it? I would love to know more about it. The care in the detail all around it is wonderful. In it's day it must have been very beautiful. My ghost hunters eye likes how it looks now, but I would like to have seen it when it was new. Do you know any history about it? Was it a stage coach stop? Or did your grandparents own it and it was just a happy home?
