Susan P asks: "There is a little dome on the steeple, rather than the usually spire. What sort of church was this?"
Webmaster note - according to a follow-up photo from CharlesB the answer seems to be 'Lutheran'.
Scannerman writes "Quite often, spires would get blown down or burn (often from lightning), and not be rebuilt due to economic or other reasons. The bells would be in the larger, lower part anyhow."

Susan P writes: "I was hoping that you would have taken a picture of what is between the buggy poles. I thought it might have given a clue as to what kind of church it was."
C.M.P. writes "I wonder how they got the buggy inside." and "I would imagine the buggy came apart easily and put back together once inside but then what would have been the point? If only walls could talk."

Susan P. writes "There is one edition of the Britannica which was considered to be really a notch above, with articles by many well known scholars of the time. Look it up; it could be the 11th edition. In which case it an edition with all the volumes might have some value."

1820's barn, located at the end of a long dirt road attached to Greiner Road, a county road near Clarence, NY, Erie County.
Charles writes that "the folks that own it put up their own historical marker covered in Plexiglas covered by a little roof. There was a narration inside along with a feature article from the Buffalo Evening News.  The sign is gone and the pole snapped off." and that "It may be the oldest barn in Erie County and was part of the first Mennonite settlement in Western, NY."
