The real truth is that the oldest barns are usually the unpainted ones while those with many coats of paint have long since disappeared. This is no condemnation of paint, which is necessary for most of today’s lumber. It is proof of the well-seasoned virgin timber of yesterday which was allowed to breathe and dry last longer.

Welcome back to my Barn series. I love old barns! I grew up on a farm and hate seeing these old barns disappearing from our landscape. I try to capture as many images of them as I can to preserve them in history.

These old barns form an essential part of the history of any farm, each one bearing its own story of the family that built it, of all the seasons that have passed since its construction, of the many harvests it has safely sheltered.
