Dilapidated Dairy in Scatter Creek

Long abandoned this once proud dairy barn now lies unused and in a state of decay. The barn sits on the edge of Scatter Creek Wildlife Area in Rochester, WA. Part of a 492-acre refuge, the area includes meadows, wetlands and Oregon White Oak forests, and is shelter to animals such as fox, bobcats, racoons, rabbit, deer, coyote, beaver and birds such as pheasant, blue heron and many song birds. The pastures of this former dairy are now lush prairie available for the public to walk and enjoy.

While I visited, there were a pair of fellows with two hunting dogs in crates in the back of a pickup. One fellow traversed a large area with a rabbit carcass to lay a scent trail for the dogs to track. A beautiful pair of Wirehaired Pointing Griffons were ready to spring into action while I petted them on the tailgate and chatted with their owner.

    • Jo Ann Bayne: That is amazing – gives a view we rarely think about – and such detail. I am putting in marigolds this week for a little fall color – most of the summer things are...
    • Bev: Beautiful! I was given a lovely bundle of flowers recently and in it was a perfect zinnia. So pretty!

    • Robyn: Neat find. I too, like the colors, lighting and contrast between moss and weathered wood. Neat zig zag fence, I wonder why they built it that way.
    • Evelyn Spikes: How fun to find a “forgotten” item. Like you, I’m drawn to the colors, the textures, and that weathered old building.
