Brick Barn

This is the second barn on the farmsite of the barn I showed you last week.  This one is  brick with a brick silo.





This is a walkway between the barn and the silo


Looking through the trees at the other end of the barn

I've rarely seen a brick barn and I've never seen a brick silo! That's awesome!

Beautiful - unusual to see brick used for a barn. Hopefully it will help it to last longer.

Karen said...

That a solid barn!

Daniel LaFrance said...

I've never seen anything resembling the likes of this.

Amazing find!

The barn, truck and silo together make for an interesting sight. Wow!

Great photos, Barb. That was quite a job bricking that silo, I'll bet! Very nice old barn and silo.

Miss Kitty said...

I love the shape of the roof on that barn...just beautiful! Is this barn still in use? Just wondering. Thanks for sharing your great photos of such an interesting structure.

Karen Lakis said...

Wow - a brick barn! I don't thing I've ever seen one, and with a brick silo, too. I also love that chippy wood door.

A very interesting barn Barb. You don't see too many brick barns in my area. Lots of charm with this one.

Terri said...

Cool- would love to explore that one..very unique.

EG CameraGirl said...

It's a handsome, sturdy-looking barn. How unusual to see a barn made of brick.

Pamela Gordon said...

This is an unusual looking barn with it's brick base and the rounded shingled roof. It must have been a difficult roof to shingle! Great photos. Have a wonderful day Barb!

W. Latane Barton said...

I love the shots you took, great positioning to get the best angle.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

What is striking to me is how tall the top part of the barn is! It's really an unusual barn! Twyla

I'm fascinated by round brick things - and this silo is lovely. And the brick barn is charming - it must have been a fabulous day when this was all finished.

This is a first for me...brick barn and silo. It's a beauty!

Far Side of Fifty said...

That brick silo is beautiful..what a work of art! :)

Faye said...

Built to last or just a re-purposed use for some excess bricks? Now you have me curious about how brick is laid in a circular pattern. These look rather long.

Judy said...

I absolutely love this one! I would love to have walked around to check this one out.

amanda | wildly simple said...

Wow, this is great!
I love brick, and to see so much of it on a barn is unique!
I love the shot of the door way that connects the barn & silo.

Nell at njschout said...

Really like this one, and the brick silo, can you imagine how long it took them to build it! : )

don said...

A fine barn with such an interesting shape and the brick silo is very unusual to me. Nice variety in your coverage too. Well done.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Barb, this barn is very interesting. Very rare to see a brick silo. Wonderful pics. Your adventures photographing barns is fabulous. I know I have said this before, but I think you could write and photo a midwest barn book.
Really!!
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I love all the brick! So neat. And that old truck in the first shot :)

Joe Todd said...

What a unique looking barn.

eileeninmd said...

It is a unique looking barn. I love the brick silo. Great find! Have a good night!

My Maine Blog said...

Barb these photos are awesome!!! I especially love the one of the walkway...this would look beautiful in a frame. That is something I would truly gravitate to if it were hanging in a gallery...in fact I think I would probably have to buy it, bring it home and hang it in my living room....it is a great shot.

This barn will stand forever. Some great pictures to enJOY and dream by. I saw some concrete barns last week but no brick. Were these folks rich in their day?

What a gorgeous barn. Beautiful!!

Barb....When I was growing up in Palm Beach, people in the "big houses" along the ocean have these mirrors at the ends of their driveways so they could see oncoming traffic and not have an accident. This street in Waynesboro was directly across the street from a military school and heavily used. They are fascinating mirrors because you can see so very much. Your barn shots this week are absolutely out of this world. The shadows are superb. What a great find. Your photography is super. genie

Debbie said...

It sure is a beauty and so unique!! In 100 years, it will still be there......and I hope peeps are still taking pictures of it!! Love that green truck!!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Very cool barn and silo...and the truck is fun, too!

ImSoVintage said...

Wow, I'm not sure I have ever seen a brick barn. Amazing.
Hugs,

Rose said...

I would have wanted to live in it when it was new! It is a beauty, even now.

Amy Burzese said...

And a brick silo! Very cool!

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

Wow that's a great barn. Love the brick and the style of the frame and roof. It's nice to see a silo still intact too!
