The long vacant Bank of Ellinger. Never robbed, but the doors once had their handles shot off.

Thanks, all.

If you are familiar with Texas, Ellinger is roughly halfway between Houston and San Antonio.

Love photos of old, abandoned buildings. How old is it? It seems to have a tin roof.

Thanks. The town was moved to it's present location in 1880, from two miles away, to be close to the recently laid railroad.

I assume it was built sometime shortly after. The roof was redone with tin at a later date. Originally, it was probably made from wood shingles.

It was surrounded by buildings, once, but now it stands alone.
