Standing alone in a Maine blizzard, this Buxton barn will live to see another day. Whatever the season, I truly enjoy traveling the 'blue highways' and taking in proud New England barns. When we were looking for a home awhile ago, I had a dream of an old farmhouse with one of these majestic buildings. Well, I settled for one of two. Out back and up the hill a ways, all that remains of the other, is a very ample foundation that provides numerous stones each summer, as we expand our gardens and walkways. We do have an old black and white photograph hanging in the living room; however, that shows the once, working building built by a gentleman farmer, Jacob Hamblin.
