With good reason.
This is a real letter to the editor from where I went to high school (Martinsville, VA).
Real, non-joke letter.
Yeah, so, this church is a mile and a half from the house I grew up in. Not what I wanted to see from my hometown.
OK. So, Jimmy Fallon gave Will Smith one of my “Smith Family” shirts on the first episode of his Tonight Show. WOW CRAZY WHAT?! This is insane! You can get one of the shirts here: chrisfarren.bigcartel.com HOLY CRAP.
Cloverleaf House - Sometimes, forgotten places are not as abandoned as they seem. Such was the case with what I’ll call the Cloverleaf House near Martinsville, Va.
The house was “discovered” in early 2013 when the dense woods around it were cleared. It now stands bare atop a prominent hill near the town, in a long bend of the Smith River.
But the clearing exposed more than a hidden house. It also exposed a secret life.
A man and a woman were found to be living there - completely concealed, out of mind, for who knows how long. As is the case with most small towns in a rural setting, there aren’t really any
visiblehomeless people in Martinsville. But there are now. This old house - covered over with vines, trees growing up through it - was a home. Where the people went when they were discovered is unclear.
From this spot, you can see the town’s real abandoner: a former textile mill, mostly demolished. The area has the highest unemployment rate in the state.
I visited the day after Thanksgiving, 2013.
I always wondered what was inside that house.
