I LOVE this old barn. It's made partly of stone and built into the hill. The hill is on the north side
so the animals would be very cozy in the winter.

This February we had to drive to Kansas City. I took my camera along for the ride as I knew there were a few old barns I wanted to get photo's of. I LOVE old barns...they are HISTORY. If barns could talk can you imagine the stories they would tell!
Old barn "yep I remember way back just after I was built in 1889 seeing old Mrs. Fidler out there
with a broom fighting off that mean old rooster every day until one day
he ended up in the stewpot....".
This is a HUGE stone barn that has 4 stories. To get into the big red door out front (main floor) you travel up
a dirt ramp and on the long right side of the building there is a door that you can drive right into the lower floor or basement below.
I just had to take a few photo's of windmills.
I want one so bad I can taste it!
Another old barn with a stone foundation and partial stone walls.
Ok this isn't a barn it's a stone school house. But what you're not seeing here (because I was too slow)
is that it had two outhouses...a girls and boys!
Wouldn't you just love to have THIS on your property.
This poor old barn isn't in good shape nor is the house,
but I loved the cupola.
The date on it reads 1911
I LOVE this farm. Who'd have thought Kansas would have rocky hills like this!
See that thing in the middle of the photo and a bit to the left?
THIS is what m 'farmboy' wants to make!
I don't care what kind of windmill I end up with
as long as I END UP with one.
This poor old barn has seen better days.
If we don't get to ours soon it will look like this one.
Must be a pumpkin farm!
This is the top of an old L shaped barn in our little 'home' town.
It has 4 cupulas on it! One day I'll get over there and get some good pictures of it.
This is our old barn. It's not fancy but it's a barn and it's old
which makes me happy.
We have an old barn and an old corn crib but they aren't very pretty to take pictures of
as years ago someone put tin over the wood and tar paper.
I guess that was to stop the wind blowing through the gaps.
The old barn is in bad shape on one side as termites have been allowed to eat away at the old wood
on the lean-to. Our plan is to repair the damage and tear that tin off.
I love the 'Dutch' doors.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at the old barns. I know not everyone likes old beat up buildings as much as I do but I'm sure there are a few of you out there.
And for those of you who don't admire old buildings...I hope you enjoyed a little bit of Kansas scenery.
Have a wonderful and safe day!
