We drive by the farm where I grew up quite often it is only 2 1/2 miles from where we live now.
That silo is newer…it wasn’t there when I lived there. The silo we had was closer to the barn…to feed silage. The barn has seen better days. Someday a wind or snow load will take it down.
Of course it was a tired looking barn when I was little…this photo was probably taken about sixty years ago.
It was always a white barn…not sure why? Perhaps the blue roof had something to do with it.
I believe that Loren Lemon probably built this barn or part of the Lemon family… he is a Great Uncle of Far Guys. Loren was married to Florence Graham Lemon…she was Walt Grahams sister. Years ago the three farms along the 6th mile of Highway 225 on the right side of the road would have belonged to Loren and Florence Graham Lemon, Curtis and Almeada Lemon Abbott( Far Guy’s maternal grandparents) and Walter and Dora Graham. I remember them all except for Loren and Florence because my parents bought their farm.
