When I first moved to the North East Corner of Collin County I did a ton of exploring. During one of my trips, I came across an old farmhouse on a Hill in Anna, Texas. The house has set as it would have 100+ years surrounded by absolutely nothing but open pasture land. Today it’s still the same for the most part. Sadly, the house of this beautiful old
Old Farm House on a Hill in Anna, Texas
According to Collin County CAD, the house was built in 1900. A fellow photographer had a brief conversation about the house with the landowner and she was told the house has been with her family since it was built. I was told the interior was in good shape and had been used for storage. The owners put on a new metal roof a few years ago and boarded it up. I’m assuming they boarded it up to discourage unwanted guests from checking out the house. Sadly, the old farmhouse was demolished.
After looking at the interior photos, it looks good enough to live in and had a ton of historic architecture that was saved before the house was lost.
I haven’t had the chance to look into why it was demolished or even the history of the farm/ranch house. Over the last couple of years, the area has had some bad weather that could have damaged the house, or the owners decided it was time to remove the house.
If you know any more about the farmhouse please contact us or comment below. We would like to save the farmhouse’s history.
About the Images of Old Farmhouse on a Hill in Anna, Texas
The images were shot over several years on cloudy days and snow days. I used my Sony a6000 and my Sony SELP18105G E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS lens or my Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 lens. The images were then edited with Adobe Lightroom CC, Topaz Labs Denoise AI and Topaz Labs Sharpen AI, and DXO NIK Collection
Some of the images including the interior were taken by Erica Lynn with her cellphone or her camera.
