At a Crossroad

Once there was a small, but thriving community of Axton, Virginia. Today, only a few empty buildings and a rusty water tower remain where two rural roads intersect. It’s a great place for photographers however, and that’s why I was there a few days ago.

The gray building I believe was once a small bank.
The faded sign on the front tells us this was once the Axton Furniture Store.
The old house is vacant and in sad shape, but the barn is still being used by a small adjacent farmstead. When I visit locations like this I like to envision what it would have been like to live there when the community was more than just the intersection 0f two roads.

  1. When I was a kid my dad had friends in Colorado and they took us to a few ghost town’s. I want to do that again because it left an impression on me. What I need to find and what a beautiful day to take pictures. Well done.
