The Barn Collective

I haven't been out collecting barn photos lately, but I do have a few favorites in my existing collection. I can hardly drive through the Finger Lakes without being taken in by one or two...


Arbor Road, Ontario, NY
The tree has since been removed from the silo


Rt 54A PennYan, NY


Muck Rd. Gorham, NY


Skeletal Remains
Somewhere out toward Geneseo or Mt Morris, NY about 2 years ago. I imagine it's gone by now as it looks almost as if it was being purposely disassembled.


Somewhere between Keuka Lake and Canandaigua Lake (I think)
It looked like a flock of birds had just flown over....


Somewhere between Prattsburg and Naples, NY

  1. Somewhere between your place and mine!!!! I love all of these, but the second gets my heart. Just by a tiny bit...

  2. There's a silo on Route 39 in York with a mass of trees growing out of the top. The stone barn in Bluff Point is one of my favorites. I been on Muck Road many times. The "Skeleton Barn" was on Route 39 between Leicester and Cuylerville. I've been somewhere between Keuka and Canandaigua Lakes and Prattsburg and Naples, but somehow missed these beauties. Thanks for sharing and making me homesick for our beautiful part of New York State. I'm coming home.

    1. Tom, I'm not even surprised you knew where a couple of these were/are. The barn in Bluff Point is so stunning it's hard to miss. I looked for the "Skeleton Barn" on google maps and found it in the aerial view of Rt39. If I hop down to a street view, the old girl is gone. Perhaps you and I will meet one day, cameras in tow, barns in the view finders.
      The snow is melting again and the sun is awaiting your return.

    2. I have several pictures of the "Skelton Barn" and I hate to see a barn disappear from the landscape. I'd love to meet Martha from "APPLE COUNTRY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES." I just live down the road a piece.

    1. I am inexplicably drawn to barns. I guess I have a bit of my father inside.

  4. This barn collection is so nice. You gave us such a varied group. I have never seen a stone barn n this country, so I would have to say that #2 is my favorite. What is it about barns that pulls us in and holds us there?

    1. Thank you, Genie. I think the stone barn is a favorite of many. I wonder how often passersby stop to take photos...

    1. Autumn photo excursions are the best! There is nothing quite like the farm in the fall.
