Barn Charm - Inside 1850s Americana

Last week, I shared a fantastic barn from Living History Farm's 1850s farm (you can click here to see it). This week, I thought I'd share the photos I took of this barn's interior. I used my iPhone camera, as my digital camera's memory was full. (Oops!) I didn't use the Instagram app this time, just the camera.

As you can see in both photos, this particular barn's purpose is (was) to store farming equipment. 



Sorry, I know this second one is a bit blurry. But you can see that they've got tobacco hanging from the ceiling to dry. (I don't know if this used to be a big crop for Iowa, or if Living History Farms has it in here for "show." I should look up Iowa's main crops from the late 19th century.)

And on the floor, is a yolk for oxen.

I always like to see inside an old barn. It's nice to see how it was used.

I wish we could see inside of more barns. I think what is stored inside is interesting too. Thanks for getting some interior shots.

I read your profile and I have a question about your studies: are you attending classes or are you able to take at least some online?
