An Oldie For Barn Charm

The barn I chose for today’s Barn Charm is just a few miles from us. There’s an old house in front of it, near the highway.  The house is easy to spot, especially in the winter when the trees are bare. But last month, I happened to notice the barn for the first time.

Here’s a close-up. Motor Man’s sister, Carolyn, thinks it dates from around the 1920’s or 1930’s.

There’s also an old shed on the same property.

And an old smokehouse.

This is the house that’s easily seen from the highway.  Carolyn says it’s unusual to have so many outbuildings for such a modest-sized tenant house.

The house and outbuildings have been vacant for many years, but it must have been a busy place at one time.
