Wow! You are making me relive some old childhood memories here. Great old barns there...We don't see the likes of them down here, that's for sure. Shame to see them come down through lol. Enjoying your pics!
Thanks for the comments guys! We are taking these barns down because they would otherwise be torn down and put into a hole. (They used to be burned, but the county passed new burning laws, so that is out). We own the barns, but not the land. Property taxes are crazy where I am so everyone with unused property that has buildings on it has been tearing the buildings down to save on taxes. It's really sad because we are losing old barns and houses like crazy because of it. :( When taxes weren't so high people just left the buildings because it was easier or what not, but it's just not feasible now. And Dreamer, We are located just at the wisconsin/Illinois border in mchenry county. Glad to know that a lot of people find this as interesting as me. :) I have new pics from today, but probably will upload them tomorrow. I'm really tired.
AWE... I hate that it has to go!!! I would have loved to somehow like restore it or watever, though it looks too far gone!!!! What do you mean yall are TAKING it down instead of TEARING it down... And, not to be nosy but I was wondering how can you own the barn and not the land?
