Most old barns have a tack room, and a place to store implements. There's no reason to get rid of them, and besides where would you take them? There were no dumps back then, and anyway, you never know when the new-fangled equipment might break down.
Each time I enter one of these old barns, I'm reminded of the scene in "Twister", where they seek refuge in the barn, only to find the walls lined with items that look like tools of torture. There were in a way, as hand and oxen powered farming was hard physical work.
