Homestead Houses…

these houses were built in the 30’s under Roosevelt’s “New Deal” more about it at this link ——->>>>> Homesteads History these are very beautiful homes… me and my family lived in one for about a year back when i was 4 years old.. so when i saw these abandonded houses i took photos right on the spot… hopefully these will be restored soon and people will live in them once again…
