October 22




I admire this old barn every time I drive by it.  I love it's shape and the cupolas.  I'm always surprised that it's still standing.  I was even more surprised when I passed it last week and noticed that it's being worked on.  The side that isn't visible in this shot has new wood going up.  I have to wonder if it's even safe to be working on, but I hope they are successful and save this one!

What fun it would be to have a cupola in the yard. Glad they are restoring the barn.

The shape of the barn and the cupolas are charming features!
Is that a smaller barn and silo in back?
It was nice to read that you saw new wood going up. Do keep us posted. It would be lovely if they restored it while keeping its character.

I was surprised when I read that it is being worked as I was starting a comment in my head about how unsafe this looks!

I love the shape of this old barn. I wonder what sort of history it has. If walls could talk...

That is a beautiful barn. I am glad to hear that it is getting some work. It would be a real shame for it to go down.
