Down on the Farm

The barn is a farm building traditionally used for the storage and processing of grain and hay. It houses the farm equipment and in more recent times, the tractors.

Barns are home to the farm animals. Horses in their stalls, cows eating hay, kittens in the straw, or mice scurrying around finding grain; they all are sheltered by the farm barn. The baby farm animals find the barn to be a place of safety from the weather and dangers of unfriendly animals.

An old barn has a historical place in the rural American landscape. Every barn has a unique story.  Sadly, many old barns are falling into disrepair and crumbling with age. You can help preserve their memory by sharing your own photos below.

There are many types of barns. When we think of a barn we usually think of the traditional square-shaped red barn, but barns can be round or multi-sided (octagonal/polygonal). The round barn is a unusual barn design that is found in many parts of the United States. They can also be painted a variety of colors such as: red, white, green, black, or not painted at all. Usually barns are built of wood, but some old barns are actually constructed of stone or brick.

A red barn is a symbol of happy childhood memories for many people. Playing in the hayloft, milking the cows, the joy of growing up on the farm remains bright through the years. Pictures of barns bring back so many fond recollections. Scroll to the bottom of this page to add your barn memories.
