Alright, I’ve gone a little bit off the flickr grid – my friend Lucia just posted some absolutely gorgeous photos of Best Farm on her facebook page and I wanted to share them. I believe her husband Brian took these and I felt compared to share:

Is there anything more beautiful than these simple American vernacular buildings?

I tried to research Best Farm online and found this shot. The property became part of the National Park Service in 1993, and I think this building is the same one shown above:

Does anyone know anymore about the preservation and restoration of this site? I believe it was a Civil War Battlefield in Maryland.

first two photos property of Lucia and Brian Hall. Last photo taken from here.

    Wow–thank you! I see this barn every day on my drive home from work and had wondered who was restoring it as it gradually improved over time, but hadn’t researched it. Imagine being told about your hometown by someone in another state! The world seems smaller every day…. :) Sorry I don’t have more information, but it is in Frederick County, MD, visible from both I-270 and 355. Great photos!
