Foidel Creek Barn

Foidel Creek Barn

ixboat
This fine old barn is on ranch land that was bought up by the coal mining corporation that currently works the Foidel Creek coal seam, 2 miles SW of here. Coal mines usually like to own the land above their extraction operations, to reduce complaints and liability and increase margin of safety during blasting. It is pretty obvious that this barn, and the adjacent bunkhouse, have not been used for at least 20 or 30 years. My best guess is that this barn was built from locally milled wood circa 1930. #barn #co #coal #colorado #county #creek #foidel #historic #ranch #routt
