Sunday Snapshot: Barn Again

Farm near Paris, Michigan

So long as the sun shines and the fields are green we shall need to go to nature for our inspiration and our respite; and our need is the greater with every increasing complexity of our lives.

Liberty Hyde Bailey, America’s Father of Modern Horticulture



  1. I love, love, love barns! My son has promised that some day he’ll take me on a barn tour and I can take as many pictures as I want! Love the quote, too!

    • What is it about barns, anyway?

      A couple of years ago on I saw a picture of the most beautiful barn on the Portage someone had posted…thought I’d be able to find the photo again and could not. It was white with a stone foundation, and seemed huge.

  2. Maybe this is it, Messner’s Barn. It’s on Portage, lots of windows painted white, and a stone base. It’s big and beauty. Here’s a link:

    • Thanks, Kathleen. Your description of the barn fits, but I’m unable to connect with the image.

  3. That’s it!
    I remembered it being more white; must have been the roofs.
    A note on the following photo says someone turned it into a home—-my thoughts exactly.
    Glad it’s being used.
    Thanks Kathleen!

    • I’m going to be up there next week and will check this out. It would be a huger than huge home. A Super-McMansion! I’ll report back on my findings….
