Old Building on Garden Valley Loop Road

What do you think this old building used to be? It sits in the back yard of a modern house looking very out-of-place. It is very tall and narrow. I thought maybe a school or church because of the area for a bell on top. It would be too small for a church I think, more like a one room school house. But it is built strange whatever it is. Any thoughts?

I don't do a lot of black and whites but this old building almost demanded it.

  4. Looking at the top it does look like it could have been a small church, but if you look at the whole building it does look like it could have been some kind of shed or storage facility.

  7. I agree with those who think it is some kind of storage building, but whatever the case it does make a wonderful b&w photo.

  10. The photo is wonderful, especially in black and white. My guess would be some kind of storage for grain.

  11. Terrific textures and black and white treatment is definitely the right choice. I haven't a clue what its used for...hope you get some answers.

  12. Nice photo, Faye. I also think this old building was some kind of storage for grain, because there are only two windows and a little door.

  13. OMG I love it (and it DID need the black and white) -- but it has hardly any windows.... so probably storage? Or at a minimum, a place to tell your kids you'll send them when you want to scare them into doing the chores!
