Historic Rural Barn Goshen Connecticut

Historic Rural Barn Goshen Connecticut

It just started to rain when I was driving out to the West Cornwall Bridge and I spotted this barn. I believe this is Goshen CT but I am not completely sure because it was a long drive and I went through several towns.

This is a 2 exposure HDR. I have shared that I don’t love HDRs. I did bring the saturation down on this to try to get it back to the natural colors. I don’t get the detail I wish for when I have to bring my f-stop down when there are low light conditions but for the equipment that I work with (Cheap! lol) I guess it will do. 😉

Unfortunately, I do not know the history of this barn. In Connecticut, these historic barns are quickly disappearing when land is purchased and no longer used for agriculture. They fall into complete disrepair and worse they are torn down for new construction. Many are getting saved and preserved through being placed on the national registry of historic barns (I believe it is called.) Hopefully, at some point, I can at least find the circa date of the barn but with this said online even when they are listed, they don’t give much information about the history of these barns.

If you are interested in any of my work, I just opened a store at the following site where at this time some of my work is available for purchase on the site. If you are interested in something that you see on my site that is not yet on my site, please feel free to contact me. Thanks so much in advance for looking!!


A note to all my friends, I truly do appreciate every one of you guys that are so thoughtful to take the time to visit my page, give truly thoughtful & kind comments, favs, and especially valuable critiques! Thank you so very much! I am sorry I am so behind. I have been working about 14 hours a day at minimum to try to fulfill my promise to hubby to try to explore photography as a career. If anyone says this is a part-time job, don’t believe it! It is a lot of work! So I do expect to be very busy if I can make this work! I truly appreciate your understanding. I so love visiting all my friends and I will visit as much as I can but my time will be quite limited going forward. I will be visiting everyone that does comment or fav my shots but I won’t be able to go back searching through all photos to find folks that I haven’t heard from lately. With that said, I will truly miss the friends I do have that are maybe a bit harder and take more time for me to track down on a usual basis. 🙂
