Barn Charm

Cuyahoga County Bicentennial Barn

There are a few pretty cool distinctions about this barn.

First, it’s yellow. Maybe some might call it a very yellow beige, but it's not a common barn color!

Cleveland is in Cuyahoga County and it’s a pretty metropolitan/suburban area. As David understood it, they had a hard time finding a barn in Cuyahoga County. In every other county the barn awarded the Ohio Bicentennial logo had to be very well kept and the face to be painted had to be clearly visible from a main road. For Cuyahoga County, it needed to be a barn. Take a look beyond the barn. It’s at the entrance of a very current style subdivision!

It’s probably the only barn in Cuyahoga County. From the research I’ve found, it’s not an abandoned barn, but I haven’t discovered for what it’s used, if it’s used at all.

I have been enjoying your barn collecting photos.

Even if it's the only barn in Cuyahoga County it still looks to be well kept. I like the yellow and it looks quite nice with its Ohio logo.

I would have guessed it was a house, but it can't be w/ the logo awarded to it! 1803! WoW! It's unusual, but she's a looker!

Keep em comin', I love the bicentennial barns

Thanks so much for joining this week's Barn Charm =)

I can just imagine them scrambling to find a barn -- what a neat story!

Yellow is an unusual colour. I didn't realize that the barns with this logo had to be chosen (then again, I didn't think about it much) Good thing this subdivision hadn't torn down what was probably the original building on the estate!
