Hudson Valley Musing

Speechless Sunday-Hudson Valley Dutch Barn

 

Barns are an important feature of the history of the Hudson Valley.  This  Hudson Valley Dutch Barn in Red Hook, New York is a popular photography subject; and I have had the opportunity to photograph it in several seasons.

Because some of the farmland in the area was sold off, some barns have been converted for other purposes.  However due to the historical nature of many of these barns,  there are organizations dedicated to the preservation of this segment of American history.

Living in Hawaii, I only get to see barns when I visit the mainland.

Jennifer, I love old barns and the one in your photo is beautiful.  As a testament to early settlers and history, they deserve to be preserved whenever possible.

That is very cool...we have a round barn called the Leonard barn here in Pullman WA. I will have to swing out and take a picture of it...

Hi Jen,

Nice to hear some of these places are being preserved, love that photo. Btw, I hear you might be having some exciting news of a big wedding in your neck of the woods! Heard it this a.m. on GMA.

Jennifer. This is a great picture. I always crop my pictures to the subject, but I would be missing the great sky and landscape. I am glad you did not.

Posted by Ellie McIntire, Luxury service in Howard County & Catonsville (Ellicott City Clarksville Howard County Maryland Real Estate) about 9 years ago

Jennifer - I feel like I'm stepping back in time and history when I look at that photo!  I agree with Ellie, I'm so glad you didn't crop the picture.

Sorry I have not kept up with commenting, my body decided I needed 10 hours of sleep,  and the truth is, when this happens I am not the one to win the argument :)

Hi Jennifer - Those are the kinds of images that say 'America' to me. Makes me think back to what it must have been like for the early settlers.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) about 9 years ago

Out here that would be a "then" picture, and I would go out and take a "now" picture. LOL

Posted by Not a real person about 9 years ago

Hey Jennifer, Barns can have some amazing unique history as well, and just the land they are built on. Thanks for sharing and great photo :)

John such a scene makes one reflect on the past yet look to the future.

Dora and Vincent thank you for stopping by.

Wendy thank you.

Randy I suspect putting up barns would not be the best use of the land.

Mary I agree, barns are worth preserving

Diane history is worth preserving in different forms,

Joan I just catches my attention.

Lori I have pictures of  barns of all shapes and sizes.

Debbie I won't be making any appointments for that area, I am staying away.

John I would expect to find many barns in the agricultural belt.

Lanre thank you you always know what to say.

The Dutch barn is a tangible reminder of the Dutch roots of the Hudson Valley!
