The Forgotten Building On State Route 37

A Forgotten Building. Why?

Forgotten Building On State Route 37 in Fairfield County, Ohio.

I’ve watched this building decay for at least 25 years. It may have been setting like this longer. It appears as though it was moved from somewhere else and place here on some rocks. The owners have farmed around it and ignored it all of this time.

It’s their business, but I cannot help but wonder why? Why go through the hassle. What is the significance of this building that allows it to stand? Was it a loved one’s workshop? Do they know it’s bothering someone and leave it here to spite them? Is it reserving a zoning change that allows for a replacement if they want? I can only wonder.

It’s one of many buildings I take notice of that are falling apart. “Rural Decay” is the category of photography that best describes this. How they take so long to fall down is always a curious wonder.
