The Barn Collective

click to enlarge for detail

I love this barn! I pass by it every time I drive to town but I never took a picture from this angle until today. I had to climb up an embankment behind a little store to get it, but it was worth it. If you look closely, you'll see a wire star above the barn doors. Love it!


Hop on over there to see more beautiful barns from all the world!

~Have a blessed day~

  1. I can see why you love it! I love the old silo, or what is left of it, too.

    1. I actually think this is still a working farm, Rose! I see cattle out in the fields certain times of the year, and there are other barns besides this one on the property that are busy with people and farm equipment. So I am guessing they may still use the silo.

    1. Thanks, Cathy! It was a gorgeous day here today. I stopped for this shot after my son and I went walking at the community track/garden. It was refreshing to get out and enjoy the sunshine even with a nip in the air. :-)

  3. It is a lovely barn and worth the effort to take a photo. I like the brick silo too.

    1. Yes, after I uploaded the photo I realized that I would have climbed even higher if needed. It's a beautiful scene from the embankment, but I just wanted to focus on the oldest barn. :-)

  4. Wow a brick silo! I love southern barns, they often go unpainted and have great rusty roofs. Keep them coming. Tom The Backroads Traveller

    1. Brick silos are quite common where we live. I'll have to post a couple of photos of some that have been left standing after the barns are gone. And yes, many people don't paint their barns around here. I like the way they weather au naturel.
