Barns at Fort Steilacoom Park Part 3

We've been enjoying looking at the barns at Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood, Washington. They were built in the early 1900s. There are various types of barns at the park, and they are all fascinating, but I think this one is our favorite. It's a double barn with two brick silos in the middle. These pictures were taken last Friday at twilight.

Here are links to past blog entries with pictures of two other barns at Fort Steilacoom park:
A Barn at Fort Steilacom Park
Another Barn at Fort Steilacoom Park

Next week I'll post pictures of still another one of the barns at Fort Steilacoom Park.

  6. Thank you all! As far as we can tell they are bricks. I asked my son about it and he said he saw a hole and that it was crumbling (like a brick would). I'm going to ask him to point that out to me the next time we go there, and I'll get a pic. I was amazed at how shiny it looks, though. I guess it's some type of paint? I took a few pictures today in the bright sunlight so they can be seen better and will try and post them later. :) Thanks again! :)
