Homestead | Odessa, WA | June 2019

Each abandoned homestead is a face of farming from the early 20th century. You can read the family’s struggles in the house’s sagging lines and worn facade. But while decades of harsh weather and hit-or-miss incomes took a toll, the structure still stands. Sturdy, enduring. There’s something dignified about these old houses even as they settle into the dirt that gave them purpose.
