THIS OLD BARN

Farm & Ranch Living - - CONTENTS - JEFF SCHENEKL

BE­FORE SUN­RISE, AND AF­TER an abun­dance of rain, I drove to Burling­ton, Washington, on a March day. A friend had given me a tip on a beau­ti­ful old barn there. The stand­ing wa­ter in the fore­ground cre­ated a per­fect mir­ror re­flec­tion. The Dutch Gam­brel barn, built in the late 1930s, is in­cluded in a brochure called Her­itage Barns of Sk­agit Val­ley. The self-guided tour lists 58 his­toric barns and the story be­hind each. Ac­cord­ing to the list­ing, Joseph Is­ling built this barn, which was used as a dairy. It fea­tures a hay hood on the other side.
