Abandoned Vermont: Bakersfield House

Perched on a hill off Route 108 in Bakersfield, Vermont, this little house looks like many in that region of Vermont: a classic cottage with windows in the knee-walls. Only this one has seen better days.

Bakersfield, VT. You can see wood windows and storms in this photo – though 2/2 are quite possibly replacements.

Side of the house.

The large trees surrounding the house seem to guard the old homestead.

The rear of the house shows that an entire section has been removed.

So many pieces coming together & falling apart simultaneously. You can see the green soffit and cornice – perhaps this house was once white with green details, like many Vermont houses.

Vines growing through original wood windows are usually a sign of long abandoned houses.
