October 31

This is another old farm that has been preserved for park land with lots of hiking trails.
Here is the back of the barn as we came upon it from the trails.



Here is the front and side of it. It's a simple barn, but I like the style and dark wood. The top of the silo isn't looking too good though!




This shed sits about 60 feet from the barn. It looks like it may have been a chicken coop at one time.
The property was beautiful to hike, and the barn was an extra bonus!

For more barn pictures, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.

wow..that is an old one! It looks like it had shingles on the top of the silo! Really neat!

I like that the silo still has it's roof. So many of the old ones around here are roofless. I hope the barn really is kept in good shape for all hikers to see.

Nice mid-western barn!! Love these.. I have taken a few close to the UP... I don;t know if you are in the lower or upper continent of Michigan, but well done!!

Your Michigan barns are quite beautiful. That silo looks like it was once covered with shingles. It reminds me of the covering of some church steeples here in the South.

What a nice surprise to come upon while hiking. The building are so nice. Of course you had your camera...who would go out hiking with the old camera.The rustic nature of the shed with it fading red paint adds a delightful touch. Such nice captures. genie

I love the dark wood... and the foundation! It's beautiful... that has to be one of the nicest chicken coops I've ever seen if that's, in fact, what it was used for! WoW! =)

Thanks for joining, Mari!!! =)))

So cool! There is a petting barn and working farm you can access from state park walking paths in Michigan that's a preserved barn like that. It brings back great memories for me, Thank you!!

Three great looking barns. I like the different styles. That first one on posts is very unusual. Nice post.

That's cool about it being preserved for park land. Love the barn. Will it be kept up as part of the deal? I hope so.
