One of many old barns in Christian County, KY
The shape of the doors in this old barn is a little unusual. I don't know if the farmer had a practical reason for arching the doorways, or if he just liked the way they looked.
One of the doors has a broken hinge now. I don't understand why the owners of some of these old barns let their doors stand open. It seems to me that leaving the doors open year-round would accelerate the deterioration of the doors and the whole barn. Even the door with the broken hinge could be propped shut.
I can't be too critical, though. I was noticing the other day that my little garden shed really needs a coat of paint. Maintenance does take time and effort.
