Literal post titles are literal. This is my favorite barn in town (honestly, how many barns are there in town?), so I’m once again posting a photo of it.
This was shot from the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St.
The old museum on 3rd Ave. is now Stayton’s courthouse. It opened last month, but I wasn’t able to attend the opening. So, here’s a photo of the outside, which looks a lot like how it looked when it was still the Santiam Historical Museum.
Speaking of the museum, it’s still looking for a new home. I really hope it finds one soon, as I think preserving bits of our past is needed.
A few days ago, I posted an old red barn from 1951. Today we have a very similar barn just down the road on Stayton Rd., which I’m guessing was built around the same time. I didn’t see any date written on this one like I did the last one, though.
I am really annoyed with myself for not posting this image sooner. I took it on August 5th, when the red barn along Cascade Highway between Stayton and Sublimity was either under construction or being torn down — I have no idea which, as I haven’t been back by. I bet they’re probably finished by now, or at least close to it. I completely forgot this image existed. My bad.
I last posted a photo of this barn last month, when it was in fewer parts.
I took this photo of this very cool building, which resides on Main St. in nearby Sublimity, last week when I was next door at the First Tuesday event. This building and its setting are just beautiful. I’ve never been inside, though I would like to do that someday.
Sorry about the blown out sky in the photo — I forgot how to photo good.
Today we have a joint effort between me (the photo above) and guest photographer John Brandt (the photos below). There is construction going on at the Jordan Bridge, a covered bridge at Pioneer Park. They’re fixing something or other (I’m so good with details) to make it not fall down and go boom.
