I first saw this barn in 2009 when the lilacs were blooming. I happened to drive by it yesterday and stopped and took a few more pictures.
I have gotten to know the owner and have found out a lot of history behind it. It was built in 1894 by Walter Sweetman who was part of the Irish American Colonization Company. (Let me know if you want more information on the company). The owner is keeping it in good repair and is using it for storage, not for farming. He has fantastic gardens with all kinds of interesting
junk old things
in them. I will be going out several times this summer to photograph
his gardens. While I am there I will get pictures from the other side
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.
