Our route took us through Abilene, Tx. where my mom’s parents and grandparents lived for over 50 years. Here are a few images of my grandfather’s grain company, Henderson Grain Co. He passed away in 2008, and the property is in process of demolition to clear the land for modern development. So it was bittersweet to be there in time to get these memories on record for my own family.
We arrived just in time to get a few pictures at sunset… unfortunately, this would be the last time I would ever see this old place.
I have no idea what this metal thing is, but it looked like it once had a very important job at this place…as well as this chair:
And the sunset gave some marvelous shadows and shapes:
Yes, lots of memories in Abilene, Tx. A fond farewell, Henderson Grain Co.!
