A Reminder

“A Reminder”

So many of our beautiful farms in the state of New Hampshire have been lost to population growth and development. I find I now have such a strong sense of urgency to document as many of these beautiful, fields and old buildings before they are lost to us forever. This is one of my favorite old barns that I have the privilege of driving by, nearly every day in my travels near home. Once a large farm in Barrington New Hampshire, it used to host wonderful equine events each year. Now, instead of seeing jump fences and beautiful pastures, we see both adult and children’s toys on the front lawns of numerous McMansions. Change is inevitable they say, but thank goodness someone had the Foresight… Intelligence and Nostalgia… to leave us this simple building as a reminder of what once was.

For now, at least…

  1. Hi Pat
    I have been driving from MA to NH for over 20 years and it is true, these gems are slowly giving way to big plastic toys. What a great topic for a photo essay. I look forward to seeing more.

    1. Jeanne, thank you so much for taking the time to stop in and comment on this post. I, too, have spent the past 30+ years driving back and forth from NH to MA and so much has changed. It is nice to know that I am not alone in the sadness over the loss of so much space, so many buildings with great character and worst of all, our beautiful farm animals.
