  2. Is this a barn? A really old building at any rate. Nice find! 🙂

    • Yes, it’s a very old barn. There are so many of these places falling down on the back roads around here.

  5. Ha ha ha, you found another one. 😀
    But, be careful this one looks really rotten =
    it could collapse to the ground in any moment.
    Unless you had strong storm lately,
    try shake well to test, before you come in.

    • Yes, I’m a bit worried about stepping into this one. It looks very shaky, as though the floor would collapse right beneath me, and the ceiling would come right down on top of me if even set foot in there. I think I’ll steer clear of this one. 🙂

    • It’s always fun to make that turn. There is usually something fun to discover! 🙂

  7. I love old barns and wonder if some day we aren’t going to be sorry we let them just rot away like thie one in your photos is doing. I see a lot of that here in New Hampshire too.

    • Yes, it’s so sad to see all of these abandoned buildings. Some of the ones I find are absolutely rotten; others are in pretty decent shape, and it appears people have left fairly recently, and perhaps just couldn’t afford to remain or sell the property. It’s regrettable to see these wonderful structures left behind.

  8. Great shots. Like the way, in its slow collapse, the barn appears to be communing with the trees. Like a long-lost cousin.

    • I absolutely love how you expressed that. This old barn does seem to commune with the trees in a very familiar way.

  9. Love this old structure, great little series!
