Window Views #2


Today's offering for Window Views was taken at the Shaker Village in Hancock, Massachusetts the same day as the photograph in last week's posting. This is the interior of a round stone dairy barn built in 1826. I have attached two other photographs to provide outside views of the barn. Go over to Window Views for some other interesting windows.

Fascinating barn and windows! Instead of a bank barn, this one seems to have a basement.

Love the splash of light in the first photo and great to see the windows from an external perspective!

I'm a fan of old barns so I just bet I'd like touring the Shaker Farm one day.

@Lew - It does have a basement. The hay is on the top floor, the cows on the main floor with slats in the stalls so the manure dropped to the basement where it could be cleaned out. The Shakers were very organized people.

Thanks to all for your comments

When I saw the first photo, before scrolling down, I said, "I know where that is! I know where that is!" The inside looks very like the round threshing barn at Mount Vernon. But there, horses tramped around on the main floor and it was grain that fell through the slats to the lower floor. Similar concept...

Very nice photos. I love old stone buildings.

Thank you for your comment at my site. Very poetic.
