This is the second of my series of historical buildings in Barton, taken for my digital photography class.

This barn can be seen from my house. I took the photos early this morning at dawn. Unless renovated, this beautiful and historic barn may not survive the next ten years. The field to the right in the photo is where the photo below was taken. It is now a hayfield. You can see Barton Mountain in the background. No date on the photo below. The beaver meadows across the road are named Duquette Flats after the three brothers below. They worked the farm as three bachelor farmers when the beaver took over the hayfield.
