Engineering Marvels

Imagine if you will that these wooden structures have remained standing for multiple decades and for some over a century if not longer.

It always intrigues me that these buildings were built by self taught builders using available materials.
Their disrepair brings the stories of their better days.

I really like those stone foundations! A lot of Michigan barns have them. Nice traditional barn red!

This is a wonderful collection of barns. Quite amazing that they are so old and still look so sturdy.

I ALWAYS marvel at them...specially how true and square some of them are built. And look how long they stand. Just an amazing feat.

I am always in awe of these wonderful structures, and at times very saddened when I see them falling down, as is the case with so many in my area.

I know!! It's amazing. I look at all of the barns around here, and think about all of the tornado's, and crazy weather they have survived!
