Farm Buildings
Farm Buildings-Barns and Silos around Central Arkansas

A recent local news report stated that barns constructed from wood were being replaced by more modern steel type structures. Barns are agricultural buildings primarily located on farms and used for many purposes, notably the housing of livestock, coverage of farm equipment, and storage of crops. Silos, other structures frequently seen on farmland, are used to store grains and hay.

The news story prompted the idea of photographing examples of barns seen while driving around Central Arkansas during January 2014.
