Abandoned Farm

While I was out looking for the country church a couple of weeks ago, I came across this abandoned farm site.

Front side of the barn




Back side

The old house back in the trees with most of the windows broken out.

It is an awesome looking barn. Sad to see it left abandoned. It needs someone's love! Great shots!

Brian King said...

Wow, what a great barn! It looks really big, too! I wonder how long it's been abandoned?

Vee said...

Oh that house with its square rooms... You must find yourself wishing that someone would love it and restore it.

Mari said...

What a great find! That barn was a beauty and to see that house left abandoned is a heartbreaker. Glad you captured it.

Kaya said...

That is glorious red barn! And so tall. You found a real treasure and took such wonderful pictures of this charming barn. And a silo is real art!

Rose said...

Cool!---a tree growing in a silo....I know where one is growing in a silo but it is so far off the road I cannot get a decent shot.

I love that barn and would love to know the story.

Barb said...

Is that tall tree actually growing in the silo? It must have stood abandoned quite awhile! Don't you wish it could tell its story?

Marlo RepurposeMyLife said...

Oh my. Is the tree growing in the silo?
And that door. It's really neat that it fold down, but how on earth would you open and close it!
Love the barn, nevertheless.

This is such a grand barn! I would love to have seen it in it's hayday! I always wonder why these places are abandoned and no one took care of them. Twyla

Love the old barn but especially the old house!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

These are wonderful photos! It's sad to see this place abandoned. The barn must have been a beauty in its day and the house looks like it could still be restored. I'll bet it was quite a place at one time!

Elaine said...

Wonderful series of photos! Love seeing the tree growing in the silo, and it looks like one is growing in the lean-to. No one has been here for a long time.

Carole M. said...

another wonderful barn but I'm tryiing to imagine how you pull that heavy 'door' back up?? There must be chains on there or something but I can't see any??

Dearest Barb,
From the first two pictures, it doesn't look so old, does it? Except the overgrown tree in silo (maybe), :-)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

This one is a beauty! I feel a little sad that its abandoned - I can imagine a big happy family on this farm.

Dianna said...

Wouldn't it be nice to have the means to buy and restore both the house and barn?
So sad to think of all the memories made there....

Visiting from Barn Charm.

This looks like it used to be someone's beautiful home. So sad to see it abandoned.

Jori said...

What an awesome find!!! I love the tree growing out of the silo!

Robyn@SimplyMe1970 said...

What a beautiful old barn and home. When I see abandoned places like this I always wonder. who lived there? What were they like? How did they live everyday and what happened that it's all abandoned now? Gorgeous photos.

Debbie said...

WoW...what an awesome barn!!

I'd love to rehab that home! Even among the broken glass I see potential :)

Betsy said...

Just imagining that at one time this was a working farm with a nice home full of family life and now it's all deserted. Sort of sad looking.
I do know that if I planted that tree that is growing out of the silo myself, it wouldn't grow.
Enjoyed seeing and reading your post.

Looks like a photographers paradise & I'd love to spend a day there & tour inside & out!

Thanks for joining =)

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh how sad. What a shame to see the barn and the house falling apart. I think the barn must have been abandoned a long time ago to see a tree that tall growing out of the silo though. That's pretty amazing! Great pictures Barb!

Amy Burzese said...

That is some barn, isn't it. I bet that place was beautiful way back when.
