In sharp contrast to the last barn I posted, this one would take a lot of labour to make it habitable for more than the bales of hay it seems to house. Though, it does have big windows… Taken in the summer along Highway 21, somewhere south of Owen Sound.

  1. Definitely in need of some TLC.
    That hay won’t stay too dry with that huge gape in the middle.
    I guess the large ‘windows’ did make it easy to get those huge bales in there… 🙂

  2. Looks like it’s about to fall down any minute! Great shot

  3. Hope a big wind doesn’t come along or the big bad wolf. Nice Shot!

  4. That is a great picture!! Love that it is only half there!!

  5. There is barely enough left to call it a barn!

  6. I see so many bans in Ontario like this one that are in a neglected state. Then again I also see many more that are just the opposite. This one looks like it would be a haven for bats.

  7. aw not much left of this great old barn 😦

  8. This was probably a handsome barn way back when!

  9. It looks to have been a huge barn at one time…looks like it would only keep off some of the weather.

  10. WoW! I know it looks like it’s on it’s last leg, but I just LOVE these old barns & structures like this… the history alone is incredibly interesting! =)

    Great find & thanks for joining =)

  11. A very poignant picture. What is it about falling-down barns?

  12. yes, merely a skeleton of a grand ‘ol barn! Nice capture of it.

  13. It looks so old and unsteady… many thanks for sharing your wonderful image.

  14. Yes, this one has definitely seen better days. But don’t you like to think back on what it must have been like in its prime?
    Thanks for visiting today and leaving a comment for me!

  15. Great! I love the old wooden barns best. Even in ruins. Nice shot.

  16. But will it last the winter?

  17. Wow…there’s not much left to it!

  18. Hi Lesley, I just now found your “real” blog – I generally visit the signs one. This is an awesome find! And it would be completely perfect for my new Wednesday meme, “Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors.” You’re invited to come and participate, the more the merrier! ( )
    Have a great day!

  19. Love those old open air ones that refuse to fall down. At least the roof is there in places so the hay can stay relatively dry. Nice contribution this week. genie
