Barn

In the late 1800's a group of Hungarians settled in our county. They planted acres and acres of grapes and were planning a big wine business but prohibition came along and ruined their plans. My husband thinks this barn could possibly be left from that time

I love the barn with it's little curled roofline.

That 'wine business' might have made it's way down Thunder Road in the back of a car trunk...

That is quite a big barn and your black and white photo makes it look better.

Great picture of the barn in black and white. Now I am wondering if I have ever seen this barn before but do not think I have.

It's very big, isn't it? Lot's of lines happening and it's very lovely in the B&W....

Interesting! I reckon grape jelly would not have sold as easily huh?

I came back to visit your barns. I have another day off today, and may go out looking for more barns in a different direction.
