Barn Charm

Another Barn I found that I think it is still in use. I see the surrounding is planted with corn and I think by now they are tall and have ear of corns or corn?  ^_^

Kumusta Kim?

I love your barn photography, Kim, this is really nice. I grew up just south of you in northwest Ohio, so your area has pretty much the same terrain and similar rural scenery as where I lived. Both sets of my grandparents had farms with barns, and I remember exploring in them with my siblings when I was a child, climbing up the ladder to the hay mow, smelling the characteristic smells of hay and old barn wood inside. Sadly, these old barns are becoming more and more scarce. My wife (a Pinay) and daughter and I like to look at them when we go back to Ohio, and I often take the less-traveled roads such as US 224 so that we can see more old barns and farms, and sometimes stop at barn sales (like garage sales) usually during the major holidays in the summer.

This one in the photo is probably from somewhere between the 1890's and early 1920's (I'd guess right around 1910), but I am sure there are some older ones around your area too. It has a really nice stone foundation. Note the 3 lightning rods up on the roof, each of which has a beautiful hollow glass ball on it.

Thanks for your barn posts, I enjoy them, and I hope you will continue to chronicle them.
