The Ruins of Walnut Hill Barn

The sign says this barn was built in 1825 and there was an addition in 1849. The sign also says that the barn will be restored. I think this might be the biggest barn that I've seen. There were other ruins scattered around the area that made me imagine what it was like when this was a working farm. I bet it was a beautiful place.

  1. This barn is a work of art, not to mention huge! I'm glad it will be restored.

  2. Barn conversions are big over here, usually for a house. Cost a fortune though.

  3. WOW...I would have never known that it was a barn. I wonder why it's so huge? Maybe it was a big farm possibly? Wonderful photo my friend. It looks beautiful :) Happy Friday :)

  4. It doesn't look like a barn that I am used to seeing because it is not wood. Maybe that is why it would be worth restoring.

  6. James, that's gorgeous. Gray skies don't often enhance a place, but those clouds are perfect with big ole' barn.

  10. Beautiful black & white. I hope the restoration doesn't strip away the fact that it has stood the test of time. Letting some things just "be" seems more realistic, somehow.
