5-22-16 ~ Remains of Huffman Barn and Buildings

Some weeks ago I stopped by this spot where what was left of the big old 1800's barn stood. Now, it is all gone. These photos are from last week.It is nice to know that all of that wonderful wood is going to be repurposed.

As you can see, all of the remaining frame has been hauled off and only scrap is left. I stumbled around in it trying to pick up small pieces without nails for my artwork...wet and slippery...but I did manage to bring home a number of pieces that are STILL trying to dry out.

This old white barn is still standing and in good condition. I did not walk into it to see what I might find, but I certainly was curious.

A really funky structure still standing. I need to go back and ask the Huffman boys what this is and if the white barn is still in use.

 This old structure looks like it might be a boarded up chicken house, 
but once again I do not know.

Last but not least....the burial ground for old farm equipment.

Be sure to go by and check out all of the other barns on Tom's Barn Collective...
I am linking up with it today.


  1. We had a huge landmark barn in our area torn down last fall. It was ready to go but sad none the less. I wonder what the funky building was used for. Look like an old man with a hat. great images.

  2. I love old barns! My husband and I watch that program Barnwood Builders. These guys take down old barns and build homes out of them. It is interesting and amazing. We wanted to do that when we moved to Oregon but things didn't work out. This is a lovely post. Thanks for sharing

  3. Hello, the old barn wood is very popular right now on the home improvement shows. I like the second photo and barn. Great photos. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  4. A great series of photos!
    Glad to know the old barn wood is going to be re-used

  5. After all these years the Huffman barn is gone. How sad.

  6. The old barns are always interesting. Never know what you might find in them. Always love the junk piles of old farm machinery. There might be some treasures there as well.

  7. Sad to see this all being torn down.

  8. All this old stuff is so fascinating, they stories that could be told. Make sure you tetanus shot is date and keep on exploring! Thanks for stopping by and a hope to see you again.

  9. Good Morning, my dear Blogfriend.
    These pictures show the way of all things on earth.
    We became old women during all the years.
    We had better times, like these buildings and machines.
    But we are still alive, let us make the best of this. I am so sorry, that I stopped hosting. But now I concentrate myself to hold contact by comments and emails.
    Herzlich Pippa

  10. Sad to see a barn pulled down, but sometimes they are to old to restore. The ground is more worth than the barn probably.

  11. Love old barns. My maiden name was Huffman.

  12. I always hate to see a barn disappear, but better to reuse the material than let it simply waste away.
