Houtz Barn

Explore Park . Roanoke

"The German double-crib “bank barn” represents a highly specialized form of architecture. This barn served the needs of the Houtz family’s large-scale commercial farming operation on Mason’s Creek near present day Salem, VA. Barns of this type may still be seen in Pennsylvania and throughout the Shenandoah Valley."

Isn't this a great old barn? I love the different pieces of wood they used....linking with Tom's Barn Collective

  4. I was able to see the photo on FB but the top photo on your blog will not load for me. I think we are all fascinated by old buildings, especially vintage barns.

  6. I have never seen anything like this barn! It almost looks more like a mill. The doors are incredible! What are those black marks on the doors? Where they have been repaired?

  12. I have not seen a barn like this before; very different from the ones in the upper midwest. But I like it.
