Back in 1981, thirty-three years ago, dear husband was working in Honea Path, SC. Honea Path was a mill town of about 3500 people back then, maybe less now. We lived in a neighboring town and he worked odd hours (a lot of hours) so I got it in my head that I wanted to move to Honea Path, I found the perfect house!
I was a silly young bride who didn't realize how hard it would be to work on such a big house. The house was for sale for only $25,000 back then and needed paint and a new roof. I took dear husband to see the house and he noticed all the work that he would have to do on the few hours he was home and train tracks across the back yard! Then a train came roaring by! That was the end of that!
Today we came through Honea Path again and we had to drive by the house. It looked great and the tracks had been taken up in the backyard. Quite a few houses had had renovations. Here are just a few pictures we took today on our way home..
This would have been our neighbor's house on the right.
And past a few houses down on the left we could walk to this beautiful little Carnegie library.
This house has always been known as The Pink Castle and was once a B&B. It is located across the street from the old elementary school which is now a beautiful community center. Next door is this elegantly simple house.
Take a walk down the street and you come upon this wonderful house with the big porches!
Next door has a porch .... and a rock wall!
And the beautiful intact porch railing!
There are many more homes in Honea Path that have been renovated and are beautiful. None in these pictures are for sale. I notice renovation everywhere in Honea Path.
It is time to drive on home before it gets dark. Time to put the camera away.
Hope you enjoyed our stop!
