See? Preservation does happen once in a blue moon and so does adaptive reuse.
This property is on Swedesford in East Whiteland and has the Battle of the Clouds historic marker out front.
I have zero clue who is doing it or what is happening exactly. They deserve a big thank you for caring enough to take on an adaptive reuse in lieu of a tear down.
Barn again. 😊
My sweet man undoubtedly finds it amusing that I have such a love affair with this barn in particular. I can’t help it, I love to take her picture in all her faded glory. And her slogan always tickles my funny bone as I try to imagine why exactly that ended up on a barn at the time. People talk about this barn often enough, but I am sure none of us have ever heard the whole story. (truthfully I would love to write about it, so if this is your barn and you read this, feel free to leave a comment.)
Yes, once again I have been taking photos of the “This is Woman’s Lib?” barn.
Call me a barn again.
All in all, I love photographing barns as much as old houses. They have character and a tale to tell. I look at them and can’t help but wonder what their history is. Chester Country has fabulous barns. Much more fun than planted houses and nouveau construction.
