This barn dating back to the 1800s is a Holden, MA landmark. The structure, with almost eight surrounding acres and a pond, was donated to the town in 2000. Now maintained by the non-profit organization, The Friends of the Red Barn, it is a center that helps people understand New England’s agricultural past while encouraging the appreciation of nature.
Six gardens are maintained on the plot by member/volunteers, and markers around the site educate visitors about the farm’s history. Farm Days offer a wide variety of events to experience farm life close up.

Very nice! I always see a lot of character and stories in old wooden buildings. I love barns!
Great shots. It’s always so much fun taking pictures of old barns.
Thank you. I love taking pics of barns and farms generally–especially if there are farm animals around. 😉
And the warmth in the sunlight and the colors compensates for the cold, windy and rainy day I am having here in Germany.
Thanks so much! Wishing you warmer weather in Germany!
Love seeing old barns and glad to know this one is being preserved.😀😺
Thanks so much! I love photographing barns–their character shows so easily,
You’re welcome! Yes, that is so true, we don’t have barns up here in the north.
