Swisher Blacktop Barn Charm


The road between Swisher, Iowa and Amana is called the Swisher blacktop even though it is made of concrete. About halfway between those two towns is this modern vivid red barn. Four horses may be stabled there along with their food - on this day they sought shade beneath the trees. This week's 42N barn charm offering is more recent in construction, complete with metal walls and roofing but utilizes classic barn design elements.

  4. Really a beautiful barn. I'm glad that the new construction of metal walls and roof still uses the classic barn design.
