Barn Land

The vintage barns that line so many of the hillsides of Vermont are some of my favorite architectural elements of the New England landscape. They are almost like lighthouses of the land in many ways, structures that stand through wind and rain and serve as an important tool within our lives as well.

This one is simple and beautiful and and certainly situated one some of the finest land in the area atop the hills of Woodstock.

There is so much to love within the rugged and vintage landscape of Vermont and when I am up there I find myself driving from spot to spot with a limitless availability of spots to explore. The history and tradition of the barns nested on the lands is fascinating as well as pivotal to our history here in the New England area, and while most of the barns have a weather beaten and worn in look to them, it’s precisely why they shine with so much architectural beauty and they have become a staple of the landscape of the area.
