Barn in the city

This red barn likely belonged to a large farm in Eagan until much of the land was developed into residential neighborhoods. I spotted this beauty along Dodd Road with a few horses corralled behind it.

  4. In the city? You did some great cropping to disguise its location. It looks like country to me. :)

  5. It's fun to come across these little gems of a bygone era. PS. I'm in Santa Fe without a computer, and I'm having photo-withdrawal. Visiting the library is great for books but waiting for a computer to use is a huge pain!
