Life in Christian County, Kentucky...
Old barns are commonplace in the rural landscape of Kentucky. This one sits near a house, and someone has been keeping the grass mowed around it.
If they don't repair the north-facing hole in the side of the barn, incoming rain and snow will weaken and eventually ruin the structural members on that end. It looks like the hole might have been a doorway and now the door has fallen off.
At ground level, big doors open several passages into the barn. The builder may have parked his wagon, his automobile, or his tractor inside. Perhaps there are a few stanchions where the cows were milked and some stalls where the workhorses were kept.
Maybe the barn still holds relics from the day when it was an essential farm building -- old harnesses hanging like skeletons on the wall or a rusty two-bottom plow sunk into the dirt floor and splattered with bird manure.
