Part two....looking for barns
Driving along in the country on a lowly gravel road,
on the look-out for a very unique barn.
It may not look that unique from these pictures but this barn is huge!
Hard to see from here, but the driveway is on the right side about midway up.
It's a "drive-thru" barn the large archway near the middle Right side of the barn is the way to the house,
so yah, you have to drive through the barn to get to the house.
This farm belongs to the Anderson's, it's 7 miles west of Chatfield just off Fillmore Co Rd 2
The stone barn was built in the 1880's by a scotsman named Thomas Ferguson.
There is so much history and interesting facts about this barn.
To read more see this article Drive through barn
featured on our local newspaper last week.
Here's a shot of the house on the Left
This is as close as I got... the end of the drive way (with my zoom lens)
The newspaper article says that the Anderson's welcome you to drive-through the barn,
but I'm just to darn shy, I will need to take my dad with me next time,
he doesn't have an ounce of "shy" in him.
On a side note....many unplanted fields....kinda sad
