The barn in the first picture was built in the late 1700s / early 1800s and has some really great early graffiti on the other side of the doors. She has five barns, including one which was supposedly the largest barn in new hampshire for many years. My sister has some really great and very early wooden railroad signs in her collection as well. We don't know a whole lot about how collectible any of these signs are. We just pick them up when we get a good deal on them. The urn is in a garden of a neighbor's of my family's back east. It's a very old house which has been in their family for over 200 years and was built by the first American ambassador to Portugal in 1805.

    I love old barns, but they are getting few & far between out here on the Prairies, most have fallen into disrepair :-(

    thanks walksoftly. there was originally a beautiful 1784 tavern with those barns, but it burned down when they were in the midst of remodeling it. they purchased it from a family which had owned it since around 1815 and it was amazing. there were many schoolteachers in the family and in the attic i found a slate w/ a drawing of a lady in a bustle with a little 'Poof!' coming from the bustle and kids giggling behind her. unfortunately, it burned as well.
