Ghosts of Black Mountain Farm

"Ghosts of Black Mountain Farm"

They came to America when the nation was young. Hard working farmers, they headed w est, paused their wagons on this spot, and knew it to be the very place they had dreamed of.

A sod hut was their first home, and that first spring, they turned the soil, planted, tilled, harvested their crops, and tended their chickens and lambs. A sturdy cabin soon replaced that sod hut, as the family grew. Here they lived, here they worked and began to prosper. Years passed. They celebrated each birth, sent sons to defend their new homeland, mourned each passing, and interred their dead in the grove behind the cabin.

Following The War Between The States, the family decided to build a grand Victorian mansion upon the site of that original sod hut. They named it "Black Mountain Farm," in memory of the distant land from which their forefathers had arrived nearly a century ago.

As generations died, they were laid to rest in the little graveyard: the old, and sometimes, sadly, the young.

They thought it would last forever, their paradise on the prairie, but another war came, then the dust bowl years, then yet another war. And another. This generation's youth, its ambitions kindled by the hardships of farming or by the allure of the college campus, departed, never to return.

Finally, there came a time when none remained to fill the vacant rooms, to love and maintain Black Mountain Farm, and thus it was abandoned to the mercy of prairie winters, vandalism, and decay.

Now, as dusk descends and a chill wind hisses softly through the withered prairie grass, only the ghosts of Black Mountain Farm stand watch, drifting soundlessly down moldering hallways, through the forgotten graveyard, or peering from the gathering shadows.

But what of that light in the attic window?
