We have been silent for a few months, focused on several projects. The largest and most significant of these is the saving of the Anderson Farmstead, utilizing these significant buildings in a development we are calling “The Farmstead in Midlothian”. The Anderson farmstead located north of Midlothian, Texas, was typical of many farming operations from the 20th century. It is however atypical in the character of the historic house and barns. These were magnificent structures, and, while no longer viable as a farmstead operation, with some help they are to be saved, revitalized and repurposed to live again . The house, shown above, was built in 1896 by J. P. Anderson, and was supplemented by an extraordinary barn, as well as another smaller barn and other out buildings.
