Welcome to my barn website I hope you will enjoy the rest of my site
Living in the country all my life has made me see that every barn has a story behind it and that as the years go by more and more barns are disappearing. Barns with windmills side by side are getting harder to find but I am always on the lookout for them. Barns giving shelter for animals or grain and windmills pumping water.I have taken some of the pictures in black and white to give more of a feel of the olden days.
Maybe inside this barn there is a bunch of hay bales stored in its loft to feed the cattle tucked away in stalls on ground floor.The smells of hay and cattle fill the air as corn stalks gently move in the summer breeze just outside.
.I wonder how many ears of corn have been stored in the corn crib
This barn built in 1921 is 50 feet in diameter, with horizonal sawed wood siding over the dimension plank lumber frame. The interior is in a circular fashion with pie-shaped stalls and feed bunks placed around a central wood stave silo. The barn is on the National Register of Historic Places on the edge of the Mississippi River town of Bellevue, Iowa.
