Old barn on the grounds of the Sharon Temple Museum, Sharon (East Gwillimbury), Ontarioo
East Gwillimbury, like most of the towns around here, has a museum honouring the first settlers in the area. The people who first settlers in Sharon (one of five main communities that make up EG) were the Children of Peace (aka Davidites), a Quaker breakaway sect inn the early 19th century led by David Willson who had a passion for music in religious services, unlike his contemporary Quakers.
This is one of the buildings on the museum grounds.

This is beautiful! Excellent job!
I visited Sharon Temple last spring, what a very fascinating place.
I've always liked their oats regardless of which sect they come from.
Very nicely done, EG. I would like to spend a few hours wandering about that museum. Interesting how sects divide and subdivide all claiming to have the "truth"!
Neat EG and interesting... I would love to visit that museum. Love the barn in sepia.
This is a wonderful sepia picture.
Quaker Oats---Oh Mr. B SQUARED!!!
Super shot Eg I like the sepia on these old buildings..
A good thing they were saved for posteriety
It would be interesting to step back into their lifestyle for a few hours.
I love the sharp detail of this shot.
Is this an open air museum? I like those so much!
God bless you!
That barn must have a lot of interesting tales to tell. It has been standing there a long time!
Interesting post, EG.
I like this...so crisp and clear.
Wow, this is such a great shot! I love the structure and the sepia tones are so nice! I use picnik to achieve my sepia and the choices are never what I really want. Too pink... too yellow. I'll have to play in Photoshop a little more, I guess.
I passed so many barns today, but the old fuddy duddy was in a AZ mood.
arg. I am glad you capture them.
This museum is a gem. The style from way back then is perfect in monochrome, the weathered look of the wood siding is enhanced. A soft monochrome seems to warm up the scene, an antique barn full of historic treasures...
Neat use for an old barn!
Old Barns are the best for sepia!
Great old building, EG! As always I love your sepia tone! :)
