Old Barn

Located on 9th line just north on Millard Street this old barn belongs to a house that burned down probably 20 years ago. It was never rebuilt. 
Soon new homes will built here so I thought it would be a good idea to photograph what remains in and around the property.

It's an eyesore, but your photograph is beautiful!

I cannot help but wonder who lived here and what their lives were like and what happened to them.

Wonderful photography!

I love it! You seem to be as enchanted with tumble down buildings as much as I am. It's the rusty brown and the aged grey timbers and nothing quite fitting together any more that makes old buildings so interesting.

Good to see that you care about preserving memories, no matter how decrepit and falling down they are.

This photo is a picture of a "lean to" building built by uncle and myself in the 1960's on my grandparents farm which was acquired in 1914 by Andrew Green. This building is the only building standing on the property after both barn and century farmhouse burned to the ground. The yellow conveyor belt you see in the photo is part of a cucumber harvestor built by my father and I in Stouffville when we farmed approximately seven acres for Bicks Pickles in the 1960s. You are correct that this will all be a distant memory when new housing is built and these structures are bulldozed. Thanks for taking the photo.
