With that, I'd like to share this image of a collapsed barn in Port Ludlow, WA.
In the 1950's it was a beautiful dairy farm, run by the McConaghy family. It was sold to the Nicoli's in 1973, and hasn't been used since - aside from land rental for dairy cattle to a neighbour, Gerald Bishop, for thirty years. Over time, the barn was left without maintenance. This barn could have been still standing strong, with it's old-growth Douglas Fir structure, but the Nicoli's had no interest in restoring the barn. Eventually Gerald Bishop bought the farm with other partners, with hopes of opening a dairy museum, but the structure collapsed. It is amazing it is still partially standing. The Bishops have installed fences, electric wire and “keep out” signs to deter people from investigating - or injuring themselves - but have no plans to tear down or burn the barn. For now, they're happy to let the public enjoy it before it's gone.
