Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes ~ Grand Buildings

A barn is a grand building so the title suggests...
I captured this little gem through the car window.  The red barns around Seneca Lake
are a step back in time.  I'm glad to see that for the most part they are still 
used and given care.

A Church is alway a grand building no matter how big or how small.
I'm sure at one time this was a holy place to worship.
Being I'm a small country Church person I have a soft spot for these places.
Can you imagine what all these older places of worship would look like
if we stayed dedicated?  What happens to move out?  Bigger?  Better?
Anyways this place is 'For Rent'.  
I pray it finds a new embrace for the glory of God.

This silo has lost its top!!
I wonder what the story is?

Most would agree this is defiantly a grand building along Seneca Lake.
This is Rose Hill Mansion.
Unfortunately we missed out on touring this gothic revival home. It was closed the day
we visited but it's on my list for a return visit!

Of course we came upon another grand building on the opposite side of the lake from Rose Hill.
This is Belhurst Castle.
You can spend the night, enjoy the spa and taste their wines while enjoying the beautiful 
views of the lake

The red barns certainly are grand is this part of the country!

See what the rest of the world is up to!

  2. beautiful country. I prefer the red barns over the castles, although I'm sure the castles are pretty inside. too.

  3. Beautiful barns and scenery!

  4. Quite distinctively shaped roofs on the barns.


Thanks for your visit!
Hope you are blessed in some way today!
