Why does the barn have walls and doors cut at angles? The story started on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancedot com. If you want to see the first picture and get the first part of the story, a cool thing to do, click here or on the link above. This old structure is on McKinney Road, south of Sherrill AR. It has been there a long time. In fact, in a former life, as I explained last week, I passed the structure frequently. The unusual construction never registered on me until, years later (now), I was looking for something to shoot and write about.
The notch on the back entrance adds to the mystery. Probably it was added after the building had been in use for a while. A taller new piece of equipment necessitated the notch. Now we wonder what was it?
Inside the structure I found one of the supporting columns had been notched. In the photo below, look at the bottom of the column to the right and you can see a slight indentation.
The mystery multiplies. Did someone try to chop the the column down? Why? Definitely uncool if you succeed. The crashing results might overwhelm the tensile strength of certain skeletal components.
Was someone making some adjustments to facilitate parking an implement with a weird protuberance?
Whoever did the deed, probably broke a good sweat. When I say that, WHO is the operative word. If it was WHAT, from the teeth marks he or she left, I want nothing to do with it.
Thanks for dropping by. We hope you enjoy these posts.
