Barns are a piece of classic Americana and are a common theme when driving around the hills of rural Vermont. This scene in Woodstock was made a little bit more classic with the American Flag perfectly draped across the doors of this white horse stable on a late summertime afternoon.
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.
The old and worn in architecture and surrounding landscape of the Woodstock area make for some of New England’s finest scenery, and this farmhouse has all the elements of tradition within it’s construction. Shutters and fireplaces and even some swans as an entryway greeting, this old home is everything that I think of when picturing New England living.
