"B" is for Barn

"B" is for Barn.  

I've always had a thing for old barns.
I see so many of them being torn down, including the one in this picture. 

More folks are moving to country and if they don't have livestock, a barn is just another large building to keep up.  Some let them just rot away while others tear them down and maybe put a metal shed in its place.

I'm sure these old barns could tell quite the stories if only given a chance.

There is just something about that weathered red paint.

 How many many of these wonderful old buildings left in your area of the country?


  1. One of my favorite parts of driving through the Wisconsin countryside is seeing all the old barns. Just make me think of simpler times that I long for. We have two gorgeous barns on our place, though they are badly in need of painting. Even as rough as they are, I just love seeing them every day. :)

  2. My parents had property in Minnesota with an old barn on the place. Recently the new owners had it torn down and it was like losing a family member. I found you from the Challenge and look forward to visiting again. Great blog here!

  3. I love old barns too! My grandparents have a farm in Idaho and their old barn is awesome. I can't stop taking pictures of it.

  4. I am fascinated by the idea of barns,mainly because I have never been to one in person. It could be easily developed into a loft if they're not using it. To each their own I guess :)

  5. Every time I see an old barn I just want to pull over and takes pictures. They are just so beautiful, even if the poor thing is falling down.
