Barn Charm: The Moore-Cook Barn


It's been a while since I've posted a local barn--mainly because there are so few left.
Then it dawned on me--I'd never featured one of the prettiest barns in the area. . . .

Isn't she a beauty?

Leslie Moore, brother-in-law to my Grandfather Magers, owned this property
 back in the early part of the twentieth century--30s-40s. 
His daughter and son-in-law now own the farm 
and have restored this structure back to it's original grandeur. 
The barn is located on Arkansas Highway 18 at Dell.

 A piece of Americana at it's finest. . . .
"Picture Perfect"

So nice. There are lots of lovely barns in Arkansas... I like the ones with rock around them, up in the mountains. Whenever the farmers come across a rock that has pushed it's way up out of the mountain...they just stack them on the side of the barn...that is leaning down hill!

I do love old barns! I hate to see them deteriorating and vanishing from the landscape. :-(
