Valle Crucis’ Barns

Oh, the stories barns could tell……

Hi Friends,

Gordon and Dora spent this past week in Boone. They had an extra bedroom so they invited Bob and me to visit a couple of days.   Almost immediately upon arriving, they told me they had a special place to take me with barns, barns, and more barns.  I was beyond excited.  Come along to Valle Crucis..


My passion for old barns is embedded deep in my DNA as I grew up playing in a barn.

All these barns are different with special character.


There are so many uses for barns.  People often go to their barn for soltitude or spend time in prayer.

Many times as a child I would go to the barn, jump in the hay, and even set up a playhouse there.

Not all these barns were not in tiptop condition but in ways this made them more interesting.  Lots of different materials used in building this barn.

I would love to have this sweet little barn in my backyard.  My imagination just goes crazy thinking how I would use it.  First of all, it would have a big beautiful wreath on the front.

Do you see the goat?  Actually there were quite a few.  I imagine this barn is their home.

These beautiful barns have wonderful stories to tell.  I am so grateful to Dora and Gordon for  taking me on this tour.  This is my first sequel..more to come!

  1. I know you like these old barns too. They have such character. I have never seen so many barns in one neighborhood.
