This film negative was taken by David DeHarport (1921-2001) in 1967 in Eastonville, Colorado. The photograph, taken at the Tanner Farm, shows a farmhouse with a tree. Eastonville was a prosperous farming community east of Monument, Colorado. In the 1930s, after failed crops and a flood, citizens began to move away, and today Eastonville is a ghost town.
David DeHarport was a photographer, archaeologist, and anthropologist. Between 1937-2000, DeHarport photographed the southwestern United States, specifically focusing on Colorado and the Four Corners region. Much of his work focused on abandoned agricultural and mining towns in Colorado, as well as landscapes of the state's eastern plains. This photograph is part of the David DeHarport collection (Ph.00510).
