Not every old barn is abandoned…they just might look that way

On our road trip to the forest in Logan, Ohio besides missing our turn – twice – we took some very winding (and sometimes very narrow) roads over hill and dale to get to our final hiking destination.Β  Along the way I saw many a barn that on first sight looked like they could be abandoned but in truth were just old barns still being used for one thing or another.Β  There were a few old truly abandoned barns and one ruin of a stone house with a gloriously rusted tractor behind it along the way but as I mentioned, winding and narrow roads with no where to stop without getting into a lot of trouble and potential danger.

Can’t photograph them all πŸ˜‰

    I have yet to get lost again to find those abandon barns I saw last month.

    It certainly takes a lot to bring these old barns down. Rust AND a barn – nice job!

    Fabulous! Did you know… there are people who take these old barns apart very carefully and reconstruct them on their own property and make them “new” again but with their own fabulous patina!

      Somehow that is nice but in a wrong kind of way. Move it if you must but keep the old charm. Thanks πŸ™‚

        Keeping the old charm is important. I guess they are saving them from being demolished and used for firewood. Love the barn photos!
