The Old Barns of Rural PEI

This barn was demolished in 2007 following the restructure of Alma Corner at the intersection of Rte. 2 and Rte. 151.  The old Frank Mountain farmstead had been abandoned some years earlier.  The barn was originally located in Lauretta (Rte. 151) on the Peter O'Brien farmstead and later years traded for land and moved out to Alma Corner.  So often were buildings moved in those days - they were too valuable to be demolished.  In the lower photo Holy Trinity Anglican Church can be observed in the background - having just received a fresh coat of white paint.
