Woolen mittens sound wicked itchy, and I don't want snowflakes sticking to any part of my face, but I do love a tobacco barn.
And the Salmon Brook (Granby) Historical Society's collection
* of buildings contains even more of my favorite things.
I didn't know that an old mail hut would be one of them, but that's only because I didn't realize old mail huts existed.
More typical, but also appreciated
, are salt-box houses with old wells outside.
And center chimneys that are not quite in the center.
Moses Weed built
the farmhouse; John Enders (as in Enders State Forest) owned it in the 1920s and used it as a hunting cabin.
I guess the tobacco barn comes with a bonus mini-shed.
And it wouldn't be complete without a schoolhouse.
, like all of the site's buildings, has been moved around a bit over time.
So has this state-line marker, because this is not the state line. I did go to Massachusetts by mistake once on the day I took these pictures, but I didn't do it from Granby.
