Old barns always intrigue me as they are the remnants of a time long gone. A time when people valued hard work and family.
Old barns are the last pieces of an era where wood and hard labor could help put food on our tables. Today we don’t have barn raising parties, we pay a steel building company to come put up a barn. Steel barns will never have the character of an old decaying wooden structure.
I especially love to see an old barn being used on the farm, not being torn down so some hispter mom can make retro furniture.
The out buildings made this picture as it shows the totality of the family farm from years gone by.
This old barn with its loft brings back some memories of picking up hay from my younger days.
