Old barns

I probably need a bumper sticker that says:  “I break for barns”.  I love the old barns that dot the landscape around West Tennessee.  Many of them were built on farms that operated in the early to mid-1900’s, and are no longer being utilized.  Most of these old structures, which richly add to the character of the landscape, are now in various stages of disrepair.  It is sad to see these buildings of the past deteriorate and crumble, and forever change the ambience of the countryside.

“I always sort of swooned at the sight of the classic barn structures … where everything seemed rustic and weathered and made to age gracefully.”  ~Richard Dean Anderson
