Old Red Barn Near Cherokee, North Carolina


Good morning,

Here is a picture I took while we were recently on our trip home from Florida to Ohio.

I asked My Honey to stop the car so I could get out and get this shot.  The log base of the barn was so different from the usual stone.  The barn had recently carefully been painted this bright red and the roof is in good condition.

I saw no other buildings or people or animals nearby.  This was just on a back road in North Carolina.

Such a pretty sight.

Enjoy,
Lois

Check out Barn Charm!

What a unique and pretty barn...it certainly gets a lot of air circulation.

What a great picture. All barns should be that shade of red!

Adsila said...

Love the old barns.

KaHolly said...

I would have stopped, as well. What an interesting structure. Don't you wish these old buildings could tell their stories?

Nice shot. There is something about old barns that pulls.

Very unusual to my eyes! The log base is very interesting.

Now, that is BEAUTIFUL & unlike anything I've seen before! I'd sooo love to know the history behind the place!

Won't you come back next Monday evening/Tuesday morning & link it to my Barn Charm meme... =)

Nice find, Lois! The construction is different and a little strange that there was nothing else around, but its fresh coat of paint shows it's being used and will be there awhile.

this barn is the same colour as houses I have seen in Sweden, love it!

Good morning,

I was excited to see and photograph this barn, too. I didn't leave the road to get the picture, but did step out of the car. It is on the Cherokee Indian Reservation according to my calculations of where we were, but I could be slightly off the exact location. We were wandering around on the back roads.

Thank you so much, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
Lois

So pretty! I love old barns!

EG Wow said...

Ah yes! I remember seeing this barn a few days ago. How odd that the logs are painted, I think.

Rose said...

I like this and like you, I have never seen a barn with a log foundation either...I would love to know the story behind it.

gigi said...

Very unusual. Really nice photo.

I'm guessing that's a unique structure for a barn! Great photo!

Jan n Jer said...

Now this is really different...love that log foundation. I wonder how old this barn is!!! Great shot!

Judy said...

I can't say I've ever seen a barn like this one...Great find.
