Old Storrs Barn…


Last week Greg, Olive and I took a ride down to Connecticut in search of barns.  Well, they just went out for the ride.  I was in search of barns.  Our ramblings took us to Storrs, Connecticut where the University of Connecticut is located.  But before we got to the campus, we came across this beautiful old building and Greg graciously turned around so that we could get a better look at it.

There is a sign on the building that says “Storrs Barn” with a date that is unreadable but I imagine it is something like 1860.  But I can’t be sure.  An internet search turned up nothing about this particular barn but did have lots to say about the barns on the UConn campus.  So I know nothing about this building other than I think it is pretty cool.  We were passing right at the golden hour so it really stood out in that beautiful light.



The sign over the door definitely says "Storrs Barn," but I can't read the date.
We'll be heading out in the morning.  See you when we get back.  Meanwhile, take it easy!

A golden find during the golden hour. Beautiful barn - and interesting barn with its oddly shaped and placed doors - but beautiful none-the-less.

It's definitely old because I think those trees are younger than the barn. But the pipe in the side view tells me it's at least had some plumbing done in more modern times.

Wonderful light on the barn. And it does look very old.
