I have photographed this old “rock house” several times before. It is located between Martinsville and Danville Virginia along the main highway and whenever I drive by I always take a look to see what might be “new.” As I drove by recently, I noticed that the owners had removed the wire fence that once kept visitors like me from getting too close. That did it. I had to stop. I assume the home was lived in during the early 20th Century based on its design. Today, it serves as a great photo subject. I liked the small purple flowers growing on the porch steps and the view out from an old window opening surrounded by lots of ivy.
