history down in the hollow….cedar hollow

Someone messaged me this photo of this house. Apparently it is at the end of Cedar Hollow on the left before you go under the tunnel? Does anyone know anything about this house or it’s history? I’m not even sure which Township it’s in.

Apparently the house is in very dangerous condition.

The person who messaged me was looking for any history available.

I am NOT advocating anyone explore it. It looks creepy and super derelict.

Whoever owns the land really should secure the house. But who knows if anyone actually owns it or it was a property abandoned long, long ago?

Yesterday we stopped at the Smithfield Barn for a little treasure hunting and then wound our way back through Chester Springs to do other stuff.  We decided to take some twisty windy country roads for the heck of it and ended up on one of the many dirt roads in Chester County after going by a barn I had photographed in 2009 but had not been able to back track and rediscover since!4046706748_c3c86eaa15_n

The irony is yesterday I still did not know where exactly I was, or in what municipality (I should have written down roads!), but as we came out of the dirt part of this particular road we happened upon a forgotten farmhouse. It also had crumbling ruins of barns and outbuildings.

Can anyone tell me where I was and what the deal is with this boarded up farmhouse? I would love to know the history here. I have been told that I was at “Eagle Farms” and it all used to be working farms back there.  I was also told just today that open space beauty killer Toll Brothers bought back there and other entities like Pulte and Jack Lowe and wow really?  Is it that I got a photo of what might not exist much longer and be replaced by more plastic houses?

Oh ok let me know what else I need to know or what fellow readers might find interesting.
