Joe and Sue live on a homestead that has been in Joe’s family for 116 years. For those of you around the world who measure history in thousands of years that may not seem like a very long time. But Texas is just 167 years old and the United States only 236 years, so 116 years is a large chunk of our national history.
The images are really of two separate barns that sit side by side. Sue says the barns are about 100 years old. She isn’t certain about their ages; all she knows is that the horses lost interest in them a long time ago. Photographers still like them, though, and at least one used the barns as the backdrop for a bridal portrait.
