Happiness Is…

Happiness is driving down the road with no one behind you and slamming on the brakes at the sight of something intriguing.

I always know what’s behind me and am constantly on the lookout for someplace to pull over or turn around!

I’m not sure what this building was but it appears to be an old school. It’s located on Little Creek Road just outside Frankfort and it is for sale.

Friends, if I ever win the lottery, I wouldn’t buy a mansion in an exclusive neighborhood. I would buy an old building like this and transform it into something fabulous. Although, what little I know about remodeling old structures, you would probably need to win the lottery to properly transform and maintain a place like this… but I digress.

Isn’t it charming?

The windows are especially lovely. Sadly, it’s located right next door to 35 Raceway so it might not be the most peaceful place to live – on the weekends, at least.

What’s your happiness today?

  1. Beautiful. Several years ago I nearly bought am old school house to renovate. I’m even thinking about buying a school bus and transforming it into a travel camper and travel the states. What an adventure! Wanna come along? Lol

  2. I love your articles on historic places around Frankfort. In these times of uncertainty, I too wonder about what happened during the times of slavery in the country. We own the big old Sanford House at the the corner of Springfield and Starr in Frankfort. It was also a documented stop on the Underground Railroad where the slaves were sent to as there next stop after the Concord church. A light was put in the cupola telling them it was safe to come. Many hid in the attic and the cellar waiting for their next trip to freedom. Thank you, Bill Puchstein. 813-545-9198.

    • What a historic home you live in! I love that your town helped along people who needed friends throughout this dangerous journey. What a terrifying time for them but to receive such kindness from strangers must have been a true blessing.

      Thank you so much for reading and sharing your story!
