The Star Barn.
The Star Barn is a National Historic Landmark in Pennsylvania, it was built in 1872, The stars stood for hope and good fortune for the farm and land. To see this barn we went to Lower Swatara Township. The existing complex consists of a large barn (The Star Barn), a pig barn, corn crib , carriage house, chicken coop, pond, and stone fence. And I think is about 3.6 Acres of land. They sold the Barn last year, the new owners have plans to dismantle the barn and its ancillary buildings and prepare it for its new location near Grantville, Pennsylvania, it will be fully restore . So before they start moving it I took this pictures. A Groundhoug did a quick move around but I wasn't able to take a picture, it was nice to see that he survived the last Winter.
I will save this photos and hopefully I will do an oil picture as a future project.
