  1. Yep, the barn has indeed seen better days but still makes an interesting photo.

  2. Wouldn’t you like to know all the history on that barn. Bet a lot of animals were in and out of there. Good stuff.

    • We are doing some research on the family that owned it for over 100 years.

  3. that’s a great find… is that 3 floors? it’s huge! You got to go inside? Very cool… we rarely get to see the inside of these old barns…

    thanks so much for joining in – tons of appreciation!!! =)

    • This is my own barn. I used to spend more time inside but as the winds and wet weather take their toll I am more cautious about treading anywhere I can fall 8 or 10 feet. (After you’ve done it a time or two you learn.)

  4. When I see barns in this shape, I think of people who LOVE barn wood for projects. Amazing how long these wooden structures stand, though.

    Comment by Evelyn in Oregon — March 1, 2011 @ 12:06 PM

    • Alas, that is where this barn is headed. Besides thousands of picture frames and small benchs and artistic ends, some of the wood will be used to save other barns not so far gone.

  6. I just LOVE this one. To me, the more withered and weathered, the better. Fantastic photographs!

  7. Oh if those walls could talk!!! I’m a bit perplexed to what the wheel is in the barn. It reminds me of a ships wheel.

    God bless and have a beautiful day sweetie.

    Giveaway…my place! :o)

  10. That poor barn looks like it won’t last through another strong wind, but I’ll bet it’s seen lots of stormy weather and is still standing.

    Thank you much for visiting Colorado in Color! We appreciate your comment!

  11. Very cool barn! Thanks for popping by my blog. It made it to the mid 60’s here today. Spring is on the way!

    Comment by Nicole — March 1, 2011 @ 6:03 PM

  12. That barn has definitely seen better days…but I always like seeing the old, falling down barns.

    Comment by Rose — March 1, 2011 @ 6:21 PM

  13. Wow, those are so beautiful – you have an eye!

  14. Old barns hold so much history though!

    Comment by Jennifer @ Mom Spotted — March 1, 2011 @ 6:53 PM

  15. Hi, old barns are really great places and it’s too bad that so many have been left to deteriorate like this one. Admittedly, like this one, they seem to present more interesting photo ops in the current state. Thanks for the visit to our blog (frogandpenguinn.blogspot.com). Do come again as we enjoy company.

    Comment by mizhelle — March 1, 2011 @ 7:14 PM

  17. I think it makes for a perfect picture though.

  18. I love that first photo – it is like a poster print!

    Comment by Annie @ Mama Dweeb — March 1, 2011 @ 7:24 PM

  19. Great shots, I bet there’s a lot of history in those barn walls!

  20. I love old barns! These are great photos!

    Comment by Kathy — March 1, 2011 @ 8:20 PM

  21. I am happy to hear that your barn will go on to serve in other ways. I hate when I see a new one fall into the ground. there is one up the road…sigh… You be careful in there! no falling.

  22. That is a BIG barn!

    Comment by Kelly — March 1, 2011 @ 8:58 PM

  23. I love barn photos. Grew up in the country so it brings back memories. I’m looking forward to being in the country again.

    Comment by Nichol — March 1, 2011 @ 8:59 PM

  24. That barn must have withstood many rough seasons.. it makes for a good capture. Great Pix

  27. Great pictures but I wouldn’t want to venture too far inside!

  28. I LOVE old barns — yours is great.

  29. FABULOUS photos. I love the charm of an old barn. It is just neat to think of all the history it might have. I love the last photo, just priceless!
    Blessings!

  30. Okay, what is the wheel for? We have barns, but they are all for hay and produce… no livestock. Love the photos!

    Comment by Andrea Kruse (@notimeMom) — March 1, 2011 @ 11:15 PM

    • It was part of the feed dispensing system over 100 years ago.

      Comment by dogsmom — March 2, 2011 @ 10:36 AM

  31. I would love to play in one of those too. Happy WW! 🙂

    Comment by CK Go Places — March 1, 2011 @ 11:33 PM

  32. Classic peace of history and I see these from the express way when I head out of town some look so old they worry me. YES be careful if you go inside.

  35. How fantastic, I love barns!

    Comment by PippaD @ A Mothers Ramblings — March 2, 2011 @ 4:42 AM

  36. Awesome old girl! Do you foresee trying to preserve or rebuild it?

    Comment by Nancy @ A Rural Journal — March 2, 2011 @ 7:39 AM

    • We had looked into getting some help through barn preservation societies but there are so many barns in disrepair that they have to choose carefully. In fact, the cost to repair most barns is prohibitive. It would cost more than we paid for the entire farm including house.

      Comment by dogsmom — March 2, 2011 @ 10:33 AM

  37. How neat, though it is kind of scary looking.

    Comment by Sharon — March 2, 2011 @ 7:42 AM

    • Oh- Steve just put that in your mind.

      Comment by dogsmom — March 2, 2011 @ 10:34 AM

  38. I think I would be afraid to go inside because the barn is so well worn! It is nice to think of it having new life in many pieces of furniture or to mend another barn though!

    Comment by Eclectic Musings — March 2, 2011 @ 8:20 AM

  39. A fine rickety looking barn but still showing what an interesting design. it is. The partial block wall is very different looking. A nice “find.”

    Comment by Don — March 2, 2011 @ 10:10 AM

  40. Ditto – I love barns too.

    Comment by Vanessa — March 2, 2011 @ 1:15 PM

  43. Neat!

  44. Great old barn shot…the stories that barn could tell…

    Comment by gtyyup — March 2, 2011 @ 3:51 PM

  45. Cool pics! It looks like that barn has seen better days, though.

    Comment by LeeAnn — March 2, 2011 @ 4:15 PM
