Barn Charm Tuesday


This was taken at Avenel Plantation in Bedford Co, Va....we were there in the fall of the past year. I did use this barn once before for Barn Charm but not this particular image. When I used it the first time I tried to find information on the barn. The house was built in 1838 but I couldn't find anything at that time on the barn, but when I looked again I did find the application for listing Avenel on the National Register of Historical Places and found this about the barn:

Situated further west of this grouping is a one - and - a - half - story , gable - roofed , frame nineteenth - century barn . The south portion of the gable roof is extended downward to shelter a lean - to addition along the building's south side. The main portion of the barn is divided into four stalls.

The application is quite interesting and if you have time and like that sort of stuff, you can read more HERE

Of course I'm linking up with Barn Charm so go check it out!

  8. This is a lovely shot - great light and color. I wish they could just lose the security system sign - then you wouldn't know it this was taken in 2011 or 1961.
