A Barn in the Neighborhood Image Posted on April 25, 2013 by jefferyjohns Share this:PinterestFacebookTwitterEmailLinkedInTumblrRedditLike this:Like Loading... Related
Hey Jeff – Great photo! I live in U.R. We are going to really miss the barn as it has been for the last 7 years. It is unfortunately being slowly removed from the inside out. A barn will still exist in the same spot but it will not be the same barn that we have all enjoyed looking at and has added such character to the neighborhood (just another boring metal barn).
Several days ago, I was mowing the lawn and a car pulled up with two older gentlemen. I stopped mowing and went up to speak with them. According to the one man, the barn was built by his Father (his Father was a carpenter but did not own the barn) in 1937. He has been attempting, unsuccessfully, for the last few years to get in to see if his late Father’s initials were still in the barn. He seemed pretty disapointed to see that so much of the barn was gone. According to him, this was the first barn of this kind in Kentucky. Such a shame to lose something so special. With that being said, welcome to U.R. and keep up the great work!
Thanks for the compliment on the photo, and also for the awesome history the barn, what an interesting story! It looks like the barns coming along now. Wonder if they’ll paint it black. Cheers, Jeff
