The Once Beautiful Gray House, Sims, ND

I have seen alot of abandoned houses, and I know that once they were all beautiful but none so much as this one. I found an old photograph of it, and the beauty of this house when it was first built will take your breath away. Now the house slumps on a lonely windy hill in the ghost town of Sims. I could post alot of history about Sims, because I have read alot about it--like that it used to have a brick factory that didn't make very good bricks (probably the same bricks this house was made with)--but I'll just post a link below about Sims history for those who are interested. What I really want to focus on is this incredible house. At the bottom of each photo you'll see the photo of how it used to look. Here is some further information about the Gray House.

 

House built in 1890 first occupied by the Anderson family. The Tom Gray family moved in 1910 and lived there until 1930. School teachers boarded there because it used to be right next to the school (now gone).
