What a barn! This is a great shot.

WoW! Now that's an old one & quite big, too! Very cool & thanks so much, Brian! Much appreciated

Tricia said...

That place has been around for a looong time! Have you posted something on this place before? cuz that page & those buildings look familiar - it's the only way I would have seen it.

What a neat barn. I love all the different pieces that make it what it is today. Nicely captured.

Very neat looking barn. The various "pieces" of it add character!

Judy said...

Awesome...I love how it is pieced together!

Rebecca said...

Certainly a hodge podge of materials.

Halcyon said...

This one needs a little work!

Anne Marie said...

that barn sure looks like it was loved to pieces with all those patch work! they really needed to save it didn't they?

so nice of you to come by the farm today...

As a lover of old barns I was delighted to find this meme. Since what is called "progress" is causing the old barns in my state to disappear it will be great to see what is still out there in other parts of the country.

Your entry this week reminds me of many that I have seen when visiting with my mothers relatives across the state of Alabama. Heck there are even a few tin patched barns around this part of Missouri.

Great shot. Love it.

Looks like they used a bit of everything.

Neal said...

Wow, don't look like they had any plan when it was repaired. :)

EG Wow said...

Looks like someone has been patching this barn together for many years. What a history!

James said...

I don't remember seeing very many barns when I was living in N.Texas. I should have looked harder. This one sure looks well used. :)

Interesting Find. It looks like it's been repaired a few times.
