A drive through the Midwest countryside wouldn't be complete without a dozen or so barn sightings.
As our daily talk show, Central Standard, prepares for its examination of challenges that go into barn restoration, we rounded up a collection of regional barn photos — thanks to you.
We asked our listeners for their best pics of regional barns and they were happy to oblige. Flip through the above slideshow for a sampling of what you sent in.
Have barn photos of your own you'd like to share? We're still adding to the collection. Email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tune into Central Standard at 10 a.m. Wednesday for a live discussion on the challenges and opportunities that the iconic U.S. barn faces today. You can listen live at kcur.org.
