The barn and outbuildings stood just to the east of the old farmhouse we've been exploring this week. We visited this property before, on March 9, 2006. At that time I photographed from the roadway, not actually venturing on the property but I believe the barn had already collapsed at that time. 64 acre farm for sale, 64 acre farm still for sale.
Walking around the outbuildings it becomes apparent that the barn has collapsed in a giant wave of energy, sweeping towards the silo. The lean-to portion of the barn is left partially standing. The reverse side of the lean-to show above speaks to the power of the final death throes of the barn. The opposing force has pushed the structure into a convulted form. Patches of color reveal the original barn red paint.
64 acre farm for sale. Not ever to be used as a farm again. Perhaps the sign should read, "64 acre development plot for sale".
