Today’s post is a little different than usual. No vintage flea markets, thrifting trips, or restaurants. Just some beautiful old barns that I found on our trip to Ontario, Canada, last year.

Old Barns in Ontario, Canada
We were in rural Ontario the week after Christmas to spend some time with my daughter and her family. Of course, it snowed most of the time we were there. Every time we go I admire the barns so this time I made my son-in-law and Bikeman stop every time I saw a picturesque barn. These are some of my favorites.
I love how so many of the old barns had the farm or family name on the side. And gambrel barns are my favorite! We don’t have these back in Texas where I grew up!
The size of these barns is just amazing to me. I grew up on a farm but our animals could spend the whole winter outdoors. The most any of them had was a shed.
This next one is a combination of a gambrel barn and a bank barn. Gambrel refers to the roof and bank means it’s built into the ground and can be entered from the first floor on one side and the second floor on the other.
I think this was the only black barn I saw. Love how it stood out on the snow. This style is called a gable barn. Notice how the roof is different?
The sun did finally come out so you can see how bright these next two red and green barns are.
This was my favorite one. You can tell there’s an old barn on the back that the farmer added on to. I think it looks like it belongs on a calendar. Maybe I should create one with all my old barn photos! What do you think?
