old barn and stables

This massive barn and horse stable was part of a farm that went out of business about a decade ago. The farmer’s home next to the barn lies dormant and falling apart as well.

I discovered a running water hose, and based on some estimates of water pressure and time, I figure if it had been running since the farm was abandoned (10 years) and with a flow rate of 2 gallons per minute, that over 10 million gallons of water wasted. A garden hose can produces 6.5 gallons per minute though, so at full pressure (which it didn’t seem to be at) that would raise the figure to 35 million gallons of water wasted.

When I visited this place in 2003, the entire property was for sale to be turned into townhouses within a year. I doubt it’s still there now…



The back looked worse then the front and showed complete disrepair. I doubt this place could be salvaged. Interesting that this place went downhill so fast in only 8 years while other places abandoned much longer are in much better shape….
