Highway 59: A Series - Take 2

For the month of December, I am sharing the charm of barns along Highway 59.

If you missed it, you can go here to view the first barn 
and for the sweet and lowdown on the series.

As I drove by this next barn, I sighed how lovely it was and kept on going.
Then after a two or three minutes I gave my head a shake and turned around.
The three amigos to the right gave me a stare down which admit it, could make anyone
a little nervous, but perhaps it was just a little protectionism kicking in.
I wondered, if this was a trait passed on from inhabitant to inhabitant of this treasured barn and, 
if so, just how many generations of 'barn families' have come and gone since my grandparents 
first traveled this road around sixty-five years ago?

~Be well friends~

I just love the photo of that barn :) :) I love old barns...and the history is always so enchanting. I wonder about the people who've used that barn, too :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

Beautiful barn & I can see why you would turn around just to capture it. I certainly would!

Did I say this before? I love this barn, especially the field stone on the bottom/lower. I can just see all the neighbors there to help lay the stone and lift the beams, build the walls.
Those were the days of TEAM!

This is an awesome capture of the barn you have shared with us, and your texture is superb. I love it. The image is beautiful. The rough fencing really sets it off nicely. genie

Definitely a treasured barn & I imagine they're used to the 'paparazzi' bulbs flashing away at them & their beloved barn! LoL!

This is sure a well built barn...love the stone foundation. And with all those fences, it would do for Fridays fences at Life According to Jan And Jer.
