Barn Charm – Finally

This old barn is just on the outskirts of town. It’s barely visible from the main highway.

Motor Man and I know the landowner, as well as the caretaker, but rarely see them.

Saturday, as we drove by, the gate was open, so we ventured down the lane.

I wish it hadn’t been such an overcast day, but I’m glad to finally get pictures of this old beauty.

Linking up to Barn Charm.

  1. That is a big barn.
    “But Rick” I’ll say when he turns into a driveway, “they’re not expecting us.”
    His response: “If the gate is open, we’re welcome.”
    Don’t you just love country neighbors?

  2. Poor old beauty it is!

  8. Now that’s a big barn with lots of character. Wish he could talk and tell you all his history!

  9. Keep your eyes out for the owner or caretaker & see if they can tell you some history on this ol beauty! I just love these big ol barns =)

    I’m sorry about the badges page… I don’t know what happened, but a couple weeks ago I clicked on the Barn Charm link at the top of my page & the page loaded just fine, but when I clicked on the tools link to add the new badge the whole page just disappeared. I’ll work on getting it back up & running… here’s a link to the new badge itself… New Barn Charm Badge
    Is that the one you was looking for?

    Thanks a million for joining this week’s Charmiversary =)

  16. She’s a beaut…. I love the symmetry of the first picture, but the side shots sure do show how GIGANTIC she is.

  17. At one time this must have been a real beauty. In its own way it still is. I love all those windows!

  18. This one is a real charmer! This is a very large barn and I love the placement of the windows.

  19. An open gate says welcome. And this old barn says ‘take my picture!”

  20. Now there’s a barn that could store some serious hay! I bet at one time it collected quite a bit of ton-age in hay from the surrounding land. Nice.

  23. As a child, I would have loved playing in this barn! I wonder if it has kitties in it.

  24. That’s a large barn! Don’t you wonder about it’s first construction and all of the animals and hay bales and dances it has served up over the years?
