The Barn Collective

A couple more barns from our drive last Sunday afternoon.

I have to admit it was the truck that really caught my eye, but without the shelter of the barn, I probably wouldn't have taken the picture.




This second barn is a beauty, and I love the old, green shutters opposite the rolling door at the bottom.

I love old barns. See some more and share your photos at Tom's Barn Collective.

  1. ...Martha, I always try to place your barns. The first one I haven't a clue, but the second one, is it on Walworth/Ontario road? The truck caught my eye too. Thanks for sharing, I hope that the lights don't go out on you this week!

    1. They're both on Rt. 88 (or Melvin Hill Rd.) between Phelps and Geneva. Not too far from the peony farm.

  2. Living here in the south where barns are low with gently sloping roofs, I am intrigued by the large barns with high peaked roofs where you live. A difference made necessary by weather conditions.
    Have a wonderful day!

    1. I'm sure much of it does have to do with the weather. Even now the weight of a heavy winter snow can bring an old barn down. Those high peaked haymows make great playgrounds!

  3. I find Lea's comment interesting. The difference in North and Southern barns. We have lots of tall barns mostly to store hay but seems to me the difference is what is housed in barns.

    1. I know hay used to be stored in the upper floor of the barn, which is why it was referred to as a haymow or a hayloft. Dad always drew the upper door/window with hay or straw hanging out of it.
