Hiway 20 Barns and Beyond

And now - more drive-by barn photos on busy Hiway 20 - this time they are all gambrel roofed - the more traditional barn of our area.
Cement blocks on the lower half - wood above - and a lovely white fence 
 Do you see the face on the barn?
 A falling down barn - chairs and doors sitting out back - and on the right side of the barn the old basketball hoop for the farmer's kids.
 A working farm, this one is not on the hiway - but is a perfect example of the style of barn in our area.


 Lots of windows

 I've shown this one before - it is being demolished and I suppose the wood will be sold for renovation projects.  I barely got a shot between cars.
 Neat and tidy - and ready for the horses
 Ready for retirement 

Two working barns on adjacent farms.

...JoAnn, I like the line "ready for retirement." What an assortment, they run the gamut from pristine to ready to retire! Thanks so much for sharing, I hope to see you again.

I like the roofs on these barns. So different than in my area. I think these designs are more classic Americana.
