Description:
Barns are large outbuildings found on a farm (or what was once a farm). A peek inside the typical barn might find farm animals and farm equipment, machinery and vehicles, or even hay and grains stored there. Although they may be built of different materials or have a different shape, they can be found throughout the world in both developed and underdeveloped countries alike.

from Wikipedia:

"A barn is an agricultural building used for storage and as a covered workplace. It may sometimes be used to house animals or to store farming vehicles and equipment. Barns are most commonly found on a farm or former farm.

Older barns were usually built from lumber sawn from timber on the farm, although stone barns were sometimes built in New England, U.S.A., and other areas where stone was a cheaper building material. Modern barns are more typically steel buildings. Prior to the 1900s, most barns were timber framed (also known as post and beam) forming very strong structures to withstand storms and heavy loads of animal feed. From about 1900 to 1940, many large dairy barns were built in northern USA. These commonly have gambrel, or hip roofs to maximize the size of the hayloft above the dairy roof, and have become associated in the popular image of a dairy farm. The barns that were common to the wheatbelt held large numbers of pulling horses such as Clydesdales or Percherons. These large wooden barns, especially when filled with hay, could make spectacular fires that were usually total losses for the farmers. With the advent of balers it became possible to store hay and straw outdoors in stacks surrounded by a plowed fireguard. Many barns in the northern United States are painted red with a white trim. One possible reason for this is that ferric oxide, which is used to create red paint, was the cheapest and most readily available chemical for farmers in New England and nearby areas."

"With the popularity of tractors following World War II many barns were taken down or replaced with modern Quonset huts made of plywood or galvanized steel. Beef ranches and dairies began building smaller loftless barns often of Quonset huts or of steel walls on a treated wood frame (old telephone or power poles). By the 1960s it was found that cattle receive sufficient shelter from trees or wind fences (usually wooden slabs 20% open)."


NOTE: If this barn is a Quonset hut, please tell us how it fits into this category (is a barn by the above definition). And, don't forget to log in the 'Quonset Hut' category, also!

Instructions for Posting a Barns Waymark:

A waymark can be created for any barn you find, as long as it fits into the following criteria: 

    1) The barn must be located on a farm or former farm or in a field
    2) *The barn can be used or appear abandoned, but if it is used it must be used for farm purposes
    3) The barn can be of any material or shape, even a Quonset hut or concrete building, if it clearly is a barn by definition
    4) *Barns that have been converted to retail or other commercial use will not be approved 
    5) *Barns that are used solely as residences will not be approved
    6) Small tool or vegetable sheds will not be approved
    7) You must provide two pictures, one of the barn alone (close-up or a crop) and one of the barn and its environment (i.e. in the middle of a field)
    8) Use the closest coords you can without going on private property, and by all means respect the farmers privacy when taking pictures. (It should go without saying, you must have personally visited and photographed this barn!) 

We realize that there can be exceptions to every rule. If you feel strongly that your barn merits special inclusion in this category, regardless of these (*) criteria, feel free to plead your case to us – either prior to or at the time of waymark submission. Appropriate exceptions would fall into the ‘unique’ description. Be sure to read the following NOTE before proceeding.

NOTE: The following are some questions to ask yourself before submitting your waymark (we will be asking these same questions when we review it): 

1) Is it unique from others in the area?
2) If you saw this barn in the category, would you take time to visit it?
3) Does this barn have an interesting history behind it?
4) Do you live in an area with few barns, making this a rarity?
5) Do it's construction methods or materials make it stand out?
6) Does it have anything decorative that adds to it's uniqueness? Advertising, signs (old), implements, unusual artwork, murals etc.
7) Does the barn’s shape make it interesting?
8) Can you describe a personal reason why you would like this barn to be included in the category? 
9) Is it close enough to see without going onto the property? (in addition to any other question on the self check) 

If you answered no to all of these questions, your barn might not be suitable for this category. If you still think it warrants submission anyway, please state your reason in your description. We will review the waymark and add it if it is deemed suitable.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:

When visiting a waymark, please take pictures that clearly show the barn and any implements, animals or other farm-related items that might be visible. This category can be as much about creative photography as the actual building itself. 

Tell us about your visit. Is this the first time you saw this barn? Did you make a special trip to 'visit' this waymark? Are you a 'country mouse' or 'city mouse'?
