Not really a barn, and yet it has a barn-like quality.
This painting of the old Ashantee Mill in Avon, NY hung on the wall in my parents' home for much of my childhood. It is one of several Ashantee Mill paintings by my father's aunt Harriet Torpey. At least one of the others is an autumn rendition.
From what I can gather online, the mill has been a sawmill, an antique store, a cider mill, and is now a private residence. I happened to catch sight of it in an online video a couple years ago when the Conesus Creek was flooding.
When my mom moved in with us in the fall of 2010, Aunt Harriet's Ashantee Mill painting came with her. It still graces the wall of the room she occupied. If it doesn't qualify as a barn, it would certainly work for a Tuesday Treasure.
