Barn Charm #18

There is a bend in Rt. 147  that has seven barns.
Four are all one farm.
The other three are two separate farms.
Alas, I have not been able to get photos of them,
because: a) it's a dangerous curve and
b) I have to pull right up to one barn to get good pictures.

However, one day I was able to slow down and take these photos.
These are two of the set of four.
They are built literally on the hill with the use of 'stilts'.
It's a busy, thriving farm with cows 'nodding hello to me every day'.

I like them because they are a good representation of southeastern Ohio farm living---
making the lay of the land work for you.

  1. I love the way your barns are built into hills. These are nice examples!

  2. I've never been to Ohio & didn't know it was so hilly there. The barns are beautiful, but those stilts would make me kinda nervous! LoL!

    Thanks for joining Barn Charm & please be careful out shooting these beauties! =)

  3. With just "slowing down" you did good. Interesting to see so many of these in what we outside of Ohio always think of as a "citified" state instead of all this "rurality."

  4. Love the statement those two barns in the last photo seem to be making!

  5. Don't you wish you could get all the barns...I like the two you show.

  6. Oh, I meant to say I love your header shot, also.

  7. I've never seen that before Beth - kind of like living on the edge!

    Sending you wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  8. hoping you have a blessed thanksgiving, beth...

  9. Wanting to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving and let you know how thankful I am that you decided to blog.

  10. That is really interesting, a grouping of barns down the hillside like that. Neat shot.
