Barns of Snohomish County

Seventy years ago there were something like 2,000 barns in Snohomish County. Not many remain but of those that do a good number are in the flood plains of our several rivers (the Snohomish, Skykomish, Stillaguamish) and are thus protected from further development pressures, if not from neglect and old age.  This last weekend the Everett Herald had a nice feature article on the county's remaining barns and the families that are trying to maintain them. Article by Jennifer Warnick, with a gallery of photos by Dan Bates, and photos by readers.

My own photo of a Maltby barn, posted last January.

Think of the poor barn owls.
