These were blooming at the test garden - I was told they are the old historic iris found at abandoned home site.

Looks like a LA iris.

Except those beards are not typical of an LA. I wonder if is is a flattie (flat bearded iris).

A flat bearded iris - OK. I don't know much about irises but am learning every time I get on this forum.
Wish I gotten a better picture of it...it started blooming early March.

I was gifted Flat Broke which is a purple, or lavender, 'flattie'. I don't really care for them. I like the traditional form of bearded irises.

Might be too new to be yours, but similar:
Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Flopsy')
Every now and then I have a quiet chat with the skeletons in my closet...just so they don't come looking for me on their own.

Agree with Bonnie. Not my type of iris.
