Barns of Fishers Hill


Fishers Hill is a hill but it's also the name of a town and a Civil War battlefield. All of these are in Shenandoah County near Strasburg. I'm typing "Fishers" without an apostrophe because that's how the highway department spells it so that's what you see on modern maps.

The first time I saw the town of Fishers Hill, I was charmed by it. The red barn by the creek, the old mill, the country store... how cute!


In this third picture the old barn has almost disappeared so you may have to look closely to see what's left of it.  See more Fishers Hill posts

By the way, we had a couple inches of snow yesterday but today it has just about melted away.

  4. I went out taking shots of old barns today. I have a few in the neighborhood that I've been following through the seasons and ages. Your last one caught my eye.

  5. that old barn is almost a pile of sticks. Sad how we let things get to the point where there is nothing left.
