The Barn Burned Down

There was a small but scenic barn on the corner of highway 44 and Alice’s Road, about three miles west of Grimes, Iowa.  It burned down yesterday.  I don’t know the cause, but it will be missed.

I took a photo of this barn from the road this winter.


I should have taken more pictures.

  1. I get sad when barns are removed from our landscape. just the presence of a barn, no matter the condition, is an important reminder of America’s heritage.

    What a shame, apart from losing the history and aesthetic value of the building it may have provided a home and/or shelter to any number of creatures.
