I’d like to thank Ellen for letting me drop by last weekend to photograph her barn. This barn is also a working barn full of hay and  about 20 head of cattle. She’s not sure when it was built but said the farmhouse on the property she lives in is over a hundred years old. This barn has an interesting and a bit of a gruesome history. Ellen was telling me that one of the farmers sons had hung himself in the barn. As well another farmer that owned the farm, he and his dog where standing outside of the main barn door  one day when lightning struck them both of them.


Her barn is located just south of Bobcaygeon in the city of Kawartha lakes, Ontario.
