This farm is about 10 minutes from my house and I pass by it frequently. I like the two barns set together and that the architecture of both is similar. I also like the dormers on the big barn and the little window in the peak of both barns.
Here's a view that shows the front of the barns with another few dormers on the big barn.
And here's a little tractor peeking out of the big front doors!
I've got a special barn to share today. This barn began it's life as a one room school house, and it was the school that my 81 year old Dad and his 9 siblings attended as children. It's been used as a barn since before I was born and that's over 50 years.
It's had a few additions, lost it's front door and gained a big sliding door and hasn't had a coat of paint in some time, but it still has charm!
I love the old windows.
I wonder how long this section has been here.
And look what I found in the addition on the left side! Another neat piece of history!
I was driving on a back road when I saw what looked like a barn, swallowed up in the trees. Of course, I immediately slowed down to check it out.
This was the view I had as I got close to it.
A little further, and it's obvious that what was once a barn, is no longer!
And here is the view from the front. You can see the bones of a nice structure, but now much of it is a pile of rubble. I wonder what animals may have called it a home and what about the farmer who worked in it? It's sad to see a barn in this condition. For more barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.
