Kentucky Barns...Big Barn On The Hill


I spotted this large, old barn sitting atop a hill by itself. It may be big, but when viewed with the surrounding landscape, it seems rather small.

Any idea what it might be used for? Hay storage? It appears to have only two entrances.

Beautiful countryside! Love the barn. BTW, I am pretty sure UK will win the whole shebang. They are, after all, #1 in the country for good reason. My son, who goes to Syracuse says that watching Kentucky is like watching a pro team. He's not far off the mark. But still it has been fun to see the Ohio teams go this far.

Wow, it's really long! Maybe there is a bowling alley inside...

Wow! Amazing views of a very big or small barn... depending on your distance from it! Love the rustic, weathered look, but I'm glad this beauty is still in pretty good shape. Is it a tobacco barn?

Mari said...

That's a big barn! I love all the views you shared of it!

Elaine said...

A simple design, but beautiful and it looks very utilitarian.

Lesley said...

It does look rather utilitarian. and nary a window to break up the long line or for light.

Liz said...

What a great barn! Such beautiful countryside. Great shots Brian!

What an amazing countryside...those rolling green hills are beautiful. I can totally imagine some pretty black and white cows grazing there on a warm summer's day. And, that barn is very impressive, indeed! (imagine having to paint that thing!? ;D)

I see what you mean by the landscape seemingly reducing the size of this monstrous barn! Very cool & very beautiful barn & setting!


Thanks for joining =)

Charming barn tucked into those lovely green rolling hills!

Carole said...

You're right, it looks completely different up close as opposed to being viewed with the surrounding landscape.

Near-ish me, there's a barn similar that sits in the middle of a fairly large city. I'm not sure how it has managed survival, but it does still seem to be in use. Probably with a grandfather clause attached. I've tried to get photos but will probably need a wide angle lens before that's possible. lol

It does look a little lonely sitting there all by itself! Nice surrounding, though. Thanks for stopping by!
