that's where everyone finds their projects. here's some
Cool old barns, hate to see them falling down but the same thing happening in this part of the country. People die off and the farms are sold off and absorbed by bigger operations and the original homesteads are abandoned
Cool pics, would love to have an old barn one day.
Maybe not a barn, but a big old elevator on the side of the road somewhere close to Pullman, WA
That is supercool, WTF is/was it?
Here’s a good definition.
They are used to distribute grain by bulk.
that is a BIG building, i'd like to have been there when it was being built.
Here’s a “magazine”.
It was the place the German society went to pick up their food portions that could not be grown in the area.
It was renovated in the 1960’s. White oak clapboard, original tile roof,
The back was open for deliveries. Even has a carrier pigeon coup in the attic.
We’ve recently celebrated the Bicentenial here.
We had a gentleman paint a remembrance logo on the only barn left during the Zoar era. 1817 thru 1897.
I like the "magazine". i'm familiar with that name as a building used to store ammunitions.
Not a barn, but a cool old abandoned mill.

Looks like a bootlegging place Ron!!!
Probably like a lot of people on here my shop space is a barn or in my case a pair of barns. It was the first major renovation project I did when I bought my dilapitated property about 20 years. As a New England "connected" farm house they were originally attached to the house. I poured foundations and pads for them and moved them to a different location on the property and then re-sided and re-roofed. Truth be told they are a big compromise in terms of shop space but I couldn't bring myself to demolish these early 1800's chestnut framed relics. First few pictures are of the building move rest are more recent.

a big thank you for saving them. I belong to a local History and Landmarks group here in Washington Co. Pa. we are looking for a barn to move to our Co. fairgrounds for an agricultural museum.
Just amazing how you’ve moved and repurposed that piece of history.
My hats off to you.
That’s a heck of a project to undertake.
We live very near this building and it's "Mini-Me". It was an oil transfer station for Gulf Oil back in the day. It is a very neat piece of old architecture.
Here is an article with the deets...
In my area the time seems to be coming when these will be eliminated:
the first one with Gillette sign is a block from my house.
That pic really shouldn't have been included in my complaint about losing barns. It's not local
to me. I drive by that place occasionally and am amazed it's not picked clean by people in the
dead of night. Either people respect the owner (and are law abiding) or fear his shotgun!
I just read an article describing the theft of the siding from a Mail Pouch barn in Marshall Co., Indiana, in July. I almost hope they stepped on a nail doing that.
I have most of an 1861 carriage barn that was going to be demolished, saved the 7' cupola with slate roof,3 sets of 6' hand forged door hinge assy',hay loft grapple and tracking,cast iron feed bins and hay racks and a pile of beams.I was going to use with an 1830's cape to make the picture right. Somebodys going to do something with it.
My grandfather's barn. Built some time in the late 1700s
Here our 1950 tobacco barn. It was about to fall. My dad and I jacked it up 2 and a half feet and concreted in all new posts. We put cables and turnbuckles on it and turned them off very few days for a year to straighten it another 2 feet or so. We hang tobacco in it and will be here for a long time. My kids and I sadly tore down a neighbors that was built in the 30’s A storm had blown it about over so we spent 5 weeks working on that We got a lot of wood, beams, and Tin to use for ours. Birdhouse my son and I made 14 years ago when he was 4 out of my uncles barn wood in Iowa.
Where I live they are tearing down the old barns to use the weathered wood for furniture, doors, floors and things like that. It's a big trend......original patina sells.
^^ I watch the various house flipping shows on tv and am amazed what the hosts pay
for the reclaimed wood. A couple of them are wise enough to build up their own stockpile.
Downers Grove, Illinois. Razed to make room for a new subdivision.
Photo taken in 2009, in a park in a town that was supposedly proud of its
farming heritage (Homer Glen, Il.). It's been torn down.
This was ours. I took all the model A parts out first. Unfortunately it too far gone to save.

Meaning it was falling down so we had a fire department training burn.
