It's in the middle of nowhere, between Pontotoc and Valley Spring. It's beautiful country with lots of cactus and old trees. The structure itself is falling apart, but is still in decent shape for being so old. The east wall has collapsed and the roof and second floor have also collapsed.

     History
    I am not sure exactly where/what this building was. It was quite a large building, so it must have been part of a bigger town. It's two stories, so it's definitely not just an old farm house.


    I believe it to be remnants of the long-gone town of Field Creek. It is not very far from an old cemetery called "Cold Creek Cemetery". Although, I can't find any details on the cemetery or where it belonged to. Again, I believe the only nearby town would have been the town of Field Creek. Field Creek supposedly had a Post Office and a rather large General Store.

     Media Coverage
    There's virtually nothing I could find about this structure and or the town that it belongs to.
