Yesterday, I drove home from Springfield, IL through the country, rather than on the highway. I got photos of 6 barns! Went through a few creepy looking towns, too. It was a rainy day. This barn was in Carlinville, IL.

The surrounding ground looks well-tended. I wonder why they're ignoring the barn?

Good on you, LJ, for taking some pictures. This one is almost iconic, isn't it.

It needs some sign of truck or tractor tires, and some fencing, some pens to show it's being used as more than just storage.

It's a good little barn, and has no doubt done yoeman service, but, as Warbler says, something's going on with the extension. I don't agree it's brush, but that's on a concrete foundation, and so shouldn't be rotting out in that section of the wall. And even though it's a serious wound, it hasn't been fixed....

Green grass :-))))))

I don't know whether it is because I read your comment LJ and got creepy on my subconscious, but there is something creepy about this barn...I would not be game to go inside it. Thank goodness though, it might not make a great barn, but does make a great puzzle. ☺♥ Sharon

Great old barn! The leanto addition isn't making it as well because of the trees and brush that have grown up along the side of it. The big tree has become quite close to it as well. And look at the green of the grass around the barn and what looks like a garden plot! This is a great time to get old barn and house photos, before the leaves come all out and cover them partly up. Very nice, Laura!!!

Smiling as we have some of those little towns here in Ohio, too .... Great picture ...

Grey skies, abandoned barns, forlorn day, sad memories. Will give greater appreciation for the warm memories of the past and the sunny days to yet to come. Thanks, Laura.
