If you travel southeast from Columbus on 70 (or US Historic Road 40), you will eventually come to this building. It must have suffered a fire at some point, blowing the roof off, which accounts for the trees, vines and shrubs growing within. It exudes a strange cheerfulness, despite its dilapidated condition. And the owners must have some sense of humor since they planted flowers in the flower boxes on the sides. US 40 is littered with such buildings; forgotten but somehow not important enough to tear down. A gem, isn't it?
