Barn Charm #25

I still have more barns left to show
from that drive on Rt. 40 East from Dayton, Ohio.

I hope to get out on the back roads around my small town
and take more photos of local barns.

I love this hilly terrain--the foothills of the Appalachian Mts.

The barns and farms that I have been showing are certainly nice;
I just miss the quirkiness required to build a barn into a steep hillside.

I was several fields over on a side road that bordered
one side of the property,
when I took these photos.

I didn't have my camera, so I don't think these photos are my best.
I took a photo of the cows that would have been wonderful on my camera,
but they looked cartoonish with my husband's old one.
So you don't get to see the cows.  Sorry.

For more barns click below for Tricia's site.


  1. just beautiful. wonder how they decide what to paint red? love the up & close picture of the barn. (:

  2. this is a big production! busy, busy!

  3. Nice well maintained and working farm!

  4. I think cartoonish cows would be fun!

  5. Looks like a busy place - and they have lots of grain storage! Too bad about the cow picture.
    PS - I love the header shot!

  6. So, is this a dairy farm, then? My husband's father raised cows for beef, in Kentucky, and also grew tobacco. The farm down the road from him was a dairy farm. It was always interesting to me, how different the barns were between the two types of farmers. The tobacco barns were weathered wood, with room between the slats for air and light to get through to cure the harvested plants. The dairy barns were painted white and of course were more weather tight.

  7. Looks like a large working farm & taken very good care of, too... that's a big farm house there! =)

    thanks so much for joining this week's Barn Charm =)

  8. A nice working farm. I love the red accents!
