I was told these are the remains of the old house which stood at Wolf Meadows west for Shelbyville for years. (T-G Photo by David Melson)
It's been a tremendously busy week so far at the Times-Gazette, meaning I found no time to work with any old photos - so that's why we're a day late this week.
But while I was photographing search efforts in the Wolf Meadows area where Bobby Smelcer's skull was found, I stopped by the remains of the old house so many young Bedford Countians were fascinated with (the search is some distance away from the house area).
As you can see, there's nothing left but a pile of rubble where the house burned quite a few years ago. I photographed the fire that night and am trying to remember...it seems like it was a warm Friday night during football season, maybe in the 1990s or late 1980s.
And I'm surprised no one ran off the bluff on the west side of Stewart Road back when there was a lot of night traffic. I hadn't been there in years, and I'm not sure if I was ever there in the daytime, so never noticed the deep dropoff.
