Barn Charm

This long and much patched up barn was just down the road from the barn silo I posted last week.
If you click to enlarge the image you can see that although the setting looks pristine the condition of the barn isn't.
I had to contend with shooting into the sun that washed out the sky; but this is the front of the barn. This perspective sure makes the barn look much smaller and in far better condition than it is.
Linking to Tricia's Barn Charm.

looks like they added on to the much smaller barn at one time. it is pretty neat, though.

It's a wonderful old barn! I love it!

I would like to know what that barn was used for. It is funny how it looks so small from the front but is a huge barn.

Beth Edwards said...

Looks like an old dairy barn that grew in length. : )

Very long in the first photo. I'm glad you took the second one even if the sky is washed out. It gives me a better idea of what the barn looks like.

It has sure been a beauty in its day!

Not only is it patched up but very old. At one time it must have been a profitable building for it's owners. Would that be a "milk house " in front or a well ?

From the front it looks like a tiny barn, but it is huge! Looks like it's been added onto at some point.

Mari said...

That is one big barn! I don't think I've ever seen one that long. Nice find!

Mary said...

That is grand!

Tanya said...

It's a sweet old barn with character and I love the teeny building! I wonder if it is a well house...

George said...

This is a very long barn -- much longer than usual. It could use some TLC.

Rebecca said...

Very large. I am sure it is hard to maintain being that large.

I WISH I had a barn! Could you imagine what a great photo studio I could make out of that?? (I love to dream about that kind of stuff, but it's not very practical for me.)

This barn has character and personality! I like it!

Somebody is working hard to keep that old barn usable. I admire that.

What a lovely old barn!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Wow, if I'd seen the front of the barn first, I'd never have guessed the length! Great old barn.

Betsy Adams said...

Interesting barn... Bet that one was REALLY busy at one time. It does look like it needs some 'love' now though...Thanks for sharing.

Cold here this week. We have been enjoying a fire in the fireplace all week... Love it!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

That poor, poor ol barn... It would be something if it was fixed up. She's a beauty, in my book =)

Thank you for joining, Carletta!!!

A fine, old barn to shoot for today. It is in worse condition that first look shows. I like the two views so we get a more complete impression of the barn.

Debbie said...

WoW...it's huge and beautiful!! i love all that washed out wood!!

Nancy Claeys said...

Would love to know the history behind this barn -- and the manner in which it was expanded. Very cool.
