Barns of Bygone Days

A barn has a special place in a farm setting. It speaks of simple farm life in days gone by. The old barn is a historical symbol of the rural American landscape.

There are many types of barns. When we think of a barn we usually think of the traditional red square-shaped barn, but barns can be round or multi-sided (octagonal/polygonal). 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.

Driving down a country road, as you pass a barn, you pause to nostalgically wonder about its past. What stories could it tell of what has happened under its own roof?

So many historical barns are disappearing from the American landscape. Fire, collapse, and bulldozers claim thousands of old barns every year. Some are being preserved, but the expense of restoring an old barn is tremendous. Pictures help us remember these buildings as they once were.
