I have always been attracted to deserted, abandoned and places that are just empty shadows of their storied past. This old stone building near “downtown” Fort Stockton TX has always called for me to stop and explore. I always think I have something more important to do and pass on to other duties. In the spirit of becoming more mindfull, last week I took the time to stop & look around this old haunt. Some other local will have to beam in if they know of it’s original purpose. I could not determine if it was an old hotel, hospital or asylum. It had a lot of faded and barely readable warning signs that I choose to ignore. I wandered in as far as I felt comfortable. Other occupants had left their own warning signs that I was a little more apt to heed despite the beautiful tiled entree.

IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #591 – more treasure on the blue road.

We were driving back from the “big” city, Midland/Odessa and cruising down Ranch road 1503. Mostly our time was spent watching out for the crazy, large, over-loaded and over bearing oil field trucks.

And then there it was. An old structure sitting along the west side of the road just south of Imperial Texas. Knew there had to be a story there. The tale however remained unfurled, but the image give the story room to roam. A real mystery.

Leave somethings to the imagination! ††† en theos ††† jimwork
