Quonset Hut on Wells County Road 1200N

A lot of farmers in northeast Indiana use quonset huts as barns. Thousands of these prefabricated buildings were used by the U.S. military during World War II because they were easy and inexpensive to mass produce, and could be assembled quickly by soldiers who were not trained as construction workers.

After the war, most were sold off by the government and many ended up as barns and garages. This one is on the south side of County Road 1200N, just west of Meridian Road, on the northern edge of Wells County, Indiana. CR1200N forms the border between Wells County and Allen County, and is known in Allen County as South County Line Road.

I photographed this quonset hut barn a few minutes before sunset. I also photographed this place on a foggy morning eight years earlier, in 2008.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
