Barn Charm 20. You know, I look at all the barns submitted weekly to Tricia's Bluff Daily Photo blog and I try, I really do. I try and find those neglected rundown barns with character that everyone else posts. And I drive around sometimes just looking for these barns. There just isn't a lot of those around here. Most barns are being used and well cared for. Some, like this one, have been re-purposed. Some have had steel siding put on to protect them. Some have had so many additions that it's difficult to see the original barn. This barn sits has been sitting here along Route 30, the Lincoln Highway, near Fayetteville, Pa. since 1881. The farm it once served is now a community park, Norlo Park, and the barn was completely restored in 2000 by the late Wayne L. Bowerman. The spaces in the bricks are vents to allow air to flow through the barn. I think these shapes are called goblets. I think you can rent this place and have your wedding reception there.
As always, check out all the other barns this week by clicking on the barn icon above. You'll be transported to a whole bunch of different awesome places.
