NW 10th Av - Part 2 - Out Buildings

To me out buildings hold a fascination all of their own...So many different functions depending on shape, size, location and of course time of year...

I love the charm of this barn door, the small window in the loft area for ventilation..

I can imaging that they kept their wagon or farming equipment to the left of the main building...As you can see part of the fence is still standing also...

The gate post of the barn yard

The chicken house not far from the kitchen door...
You can see the old gate still standing though most of the wire fence is now gone.

This outbuilding actually stood across the road so I am not sure if it was part of the same property originally or is completely separate...The pile of junk you see in the doorway is where someone dumped some old mattresses...Quite unsightly as it is just a few feet from the edge of the road.

Just a few other things I found of interest...

One last look at the barn...To the right you can see the tack room...

I did manage to find out the name of the family that used to live on this property, as well as the name of a grand daughter who is still living. If I am able to trace her, I hope to find out more information such as year built, last year lived in etc. I will post updates as I do.


Linking this post to Mosaic Monday at Little Red House.


  1. Fabulous photos, love old barns. They speak of so much history. Have a great week.

  2. Fantastic shots! Conjures up so many thoughts of what it it was like back in the day!

  3. old buildings are such a wonderful inspiration for photography. Thankyou for sharing with us, and continue your good work recording these fascinating places.

  4. I love old, weathered buildings. Your photos are lovely.

  5. As I am travelling along a road you see farms and farm houses that once were filled with families and busy lives but now boarded up as developers move in. It makes me sad to see that a piece of history will be no more and forgotten by a big subdivision. Thanks for sharing these glimpses of what used to be in your area.

  6. I love the old farms ... such history. Well done!

  7. My sister loves old barn photos, whenever I find one I try and send it her way. There is so much "presence"... a history of lives that have journeyed there, I too wonder when I see old buildings like this who was there, what did they do. Lovely, thank you for sharing.

  8. These pictures of the old barns and out buildings are so interesting. I love rustic old things like this. I am curious as to where these places are - US or Canada and what state or province. Blessings, Pamela

  9. Love your blog and photos...what a wonderful idea !!!

  10. I love beautiful old buildings and the lure of those that have been abandoned has always been strong for me... to capture their essence on film before they are perhaps forever lost.

  11. How much FUN that must have been to go to these places & photo them. When I look at Old Barns & Old Home-places I can't help but think about the stories they could tell. Thanks for sharing ! I am saving you to my Favorite Blogs list. Keep up the good work! :)


Thank you for stopping by, I would love to hear from you.
