Everything changes. Villiages grow into towns. Towns grow into cities.
Amid all of this change and growth there are pockets of stillness. Places preserved, for the moment, from the busy rush of 21st-century life and the crush of the bulldozer. But all things have their destiny and this barn is no exception. It has stood derelict for decades hidden in a patch of woods just a few hundred yards from a busy intersection. Recently a developer purchased the land. The woods were opened up (bulldozed into piles and burnt) leaving most of the largest oaks and hickorys. For some reason the barn was spared as well. Is this a sign that the barn is slated for restoration or is this only a temporary reprieve? Only time will tell.
