Barn and silo
Many of the barns close to where I live will soon be gone. Farms here are fast becoming subdivisions and strip malls.
Barn with stone foundation
An extension of a major north-south road that starts in Toronto has recently opened, cutting East Gwillimbury in two and making it easier and quicker to drive from this rural area to Toronto - the fourth largest city in North America after Mexico City, New York and Los Angeles.
Barn with any windows
In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

Turning old barns into strip malls, That would never happen in my area.
Oh Camera girl they are beautiful barns and I know the highway you are talking about when I drive down it I look at every beautiful barn and wonder how long before. Very sad indeed. Beautiful shots. Hug B
Getting good images of barns such as these will soon get harder and harder to find since corporations seem to have taken over so much of our food production. I am so thankful for Farmers Markets and the work of small farmers.
Old barns are also fading from my neck of the woods. I recently saw a documentary about farming … such an underappreciated occupation that requires an immense amount of dedication. Our food growers sustain life!
Great photos of the old barns. So much farmland has been sold here to make room for all kinds of development.
Lovely old barns. I like the one with stone foundations. Its a shame that they are being destroyed for the sake of development.
I always love seeing a barn with a stone foundation. We don't have many of those around here.
I'm glad you got some pictures of these before they fall down. Each is a beauty! Love the blue roof!
here we call this paving paradise.. and Florida is the king at doing that.. i hate to see the lovely old barns go.. and i am not a fan of progress or what they call progress... my parents were forced to move by the state in their old age and the house torn down to widen a road to make things go faster .. they had no choice..
The blue roofed barn is very pretty.
They're beautiful barns.
It is madness to tear up good agricultural land for yet more urban sprawl.
I like old barn pictures so it was a treat to see three of them.
It's good that you are capturing images of these old barns so that there will be a record of what once was.
great ones...while they last.
I love old barns, And i am always so sad to see them tore down.
Love these old combination wood/stone barns.
My husband is going to love seeing these! Whenever we are out traveling he has to stop for the really good old barns.
It seems that farming is not on the rise in your area - pity for the farmer, but nice for the photographer
What a great collection of weathered barns. Tom The Backroads Traveller
I think it's so said. There were a bunch of cherry, apple and peach orchards that stretched for miles and miles not too far from here. They've all been torn down and replaced with housing developments. Sooo sad.
So sad, EG! All our food will come from very far away if things continue like this.
I do so hate to see barns like this being replaced -- particularly with shopping malls!! But it is happening in many places these days. Poor, sad, old barns and such great pics!! Thanks, as always, for sharing!! Hope you have a great new week!
That second shots is absolutely stunning!!

these a beautiful old barns-the first barn roof is striking.
Love seeing and photographing old barns. Sadly, lots of them are not maintained and more and more of them get lost every year. You captured three nice ones!
Glad you are documenting these beautiful, old barns. You are right, they will soon all be gone. Barns have mostly lost their use on farms.
Wonderful series of barn photos. So sad to see them all disappearing!
The first one is my favorite, I love the way the light is. It makes the roof look blue. I hate to see them go!
Fantastic barns. Love the rustic ones.
I always enjoy the old, weathered barns. These are huge.
I love old barns and barn boards. Those are some beauties.
I love the barn with stone foundation! But, they are all great old barns! Have a happy week!
It will be a sad day when there are no more barns dotting the countryside. The one with the stone foundation is so beautiful.
I wonder what the men who built these barns would think of all their work being torn down...
I had not realized Toronto was so large, compared with other cities on the continent!
I like the middle barn the best!!
Three great photos of three interesting barns! I had no idea Toronto was so big! I knew it ugh and would love to visit it some day.
The are equally beautiful.
My childhhood home outside of Philadelphia underwent exactly such change when I was little. I fondly remember corn fields, woods, barns country homes and Victorian public buildings bulldozed for 60's modern that itself is being super-ceded. Cherish your moment in our place, and carry this moment forward as I have. This post should be linked to by your local historical society. Very nice post as ALWAYS!

Barns will most likely not exist in many years to come. It is too bad as these ones are gorgeous. Love old barns.
All three of your barns are fine battered beauties, but the middle barn is the one that caught my interest best. Lovely! And, yes, our societies are changing, aren't they? It is too bad that EG is now bisected by a highway. That can have some unfortunate and unplanned side effects. I hope EG avoids them.
I love all these old barns and it will be awful if they disappear for ever.
These are lovely1
LOVE LOVE LOVE your Barns!
Oh what gorgeous old barns. Sad to think they will be lost to strip malls and subdivisions. :(
I also hate the subdivisions going up!
I hate to see the things of the past vanish from our sight. We too soon forget, don't we?
Nice photos and barns! It is nice to be able to more quickly get to rural areas from a city.
The old barns are disappearing around here, too - either being torn down or just falling down. Love the one with the stone foundation. I love old barn pics.
such a shame that these wonderful barns will be gone soon
good that you have recorded them though
Love these old barns and farms. Hate to see them go. I didn't know that about Toronto being one of the largest cities.
