Barn #4 & #5

The barn tour continues.

These next two were very close together.

Stairs took us to the loft again to see what was stored there.  And no surprises: doors, windows, shutters.

An attempt had been made to clean it up for this event but someone forgot to seep the last pile up.

An old piece of farm equipment was stored on the first floor.

Current owner is working on restoration of the studio.

The 5th barn was still in use with some interesting things stored in the hay loft.

We climbed up to the loft and found it covered in a layer of hay.


I spied this old sleigh across the opening in the other loft

There was this buggy too.

Another wheel belonging to something.

Another sleigh.

Had to wonder how those old forms of transportation were put up there and why they've stayed there? Didn't get a chance to talk to the owners.

...I rarely get the opportunity to see the interiors of a barn, thanks!

The old barn where we did most of our Barn Swallow research still has all the equipment intact on the upper level, the pulleys, the hay mow, and so on, with enormous beams shaped by broad axes. Very interesting.

Such wonderful spaces!

Oh wouldn't you love to pull out that old one horse sleigh and clean it up and paint it red? It is good to see hay stored in a hay loft...and hopefully for some livestock!

It's really something to see how huge some of these old barns are! I love seeing them and looking inside!

Thanks for sharing those! I would love to go see these in person!

The barns are treasures that also contain treasures.

Your questions about HOW those old modes of transportation ended up in such high spaces would have been questions of mine as well. Too bad you were not able to ask the barn owners, perhaps another time.

I can't believe how many barns you discovered.
