September Barn Photo

Just out side of Moro Oregon.
It was refreshing to see a good new roof as so many barns of this size have been left to crumble away under roofs that hold out no weather.

  1. Nice looking barn - almost classical style! The ground looks very dry and drought effected? Are they grain fields in the background over the hillsides?

    1. Miles and miles of wheat and hay.

  2. Our barn is falling apart, but the central part is still mostly water tight. If it leaks, it's not much.
    I'm trying to convince him to save the center part, but he seems certain it can't be done.

    Great picture, Doc. Thanks for sharing this great old barn with us. :o)

    1. They are very expensive in upkeep, probably another reason I love to see them being saved.

  3. Great barn, and the cupola is magnificent. I love that red colour; does it have a specific name. Barn red maybe?

    1. Yes this is one of my favorite examples of dairy Barns with the cupola and all the little windows for natural light while they milked. It has new owners who are going through and refurbishing all the out buildings. It is no longer a dairy farm.
