More of my favourite barns...

This barn is located near Alberton - it retains much of its original detail.  So often these old barns have their doorways, windows and hatches boarded up for modern use.  The owners continue to care for, and keep up maintenance on this barn as it hasn't been used for livestock in years.
And yet another of my favourite barns - located on the former Currie homestead on the Western Road in Alma, down the hill from Holy Trinity Alma Anglican Church (see below).  This barn also hasn't been used in years.
Below is Holy Trinity Anglican Church, consecrated on October 20, 1890.  The first warden was my great-great-grandfather Stephen E. Jeffery.  The land for this church was donated by the Currie family.  The church is well maintained and used seasonally for special services.
