These two buildings, above and below, stand across the road from each other in Oliver, BC, where Mary and her family lives. They have fascinated me from the first time I saw them four years ago. The yellow signs on the barn (there is one on the other side of the house too) indicate that these are hazardous places, not to be trespassed on, and the lack of graffiti would indicate that those signs have been obeyed. There is some historical signifigance to this property relating to the early settlers of the valley and I believe they are going to be restored at some date. They look pretty ramshackle right now. As far as I can tell, the building above is the barn and the one below would be the farm house. There is a rather beautiful large home farther down on the property - maybe it houses a remnant of the family that built and used the house and barn in these pictures. I went on line to check it out but couldn't find anything about them. Don't you just love a good mystery!
And that's my house/barn/church tour for today. Have a good one.
