Let me try to give you some history about the barns I've been posting pictures of the past few weeks, since a reader asked about it last week. This part of Ontario, Grey and Bruce Counties, widely known as 'The Queen's Bush' in the 19th century, was opened to new settlers in the 1860's, after settlement roads had been pushed through to Owen Sound. There is some very interesting earlier history of black pioneers here, and of course the First Nations, but those are other stories.
Next time I'll show you the inside of one of these barns, and tell you more about their construction. There is no 'Barn Collective' this week, but I'll link in again next week.
