Loucks' Farm and Rail Fences

Loucks' farm is the main example of a prosperous 1860's farm at Upper Canada Village.

There was a yard around the main house, but the front door still overlooked the grainfield. Large boulders would have been incorporated into the fences, rather than being moved.

And there are snake rail fences, the zigzags faster to build than a straight rail fence,

but taking up more room as well.

What a cool place. I LOVE the rail fence and that the boulders were also used. A wonderful place to daydream.

What beautiful shots of an amazing fence. I LOVE the way the boulders are incorporated into it! Killing two stones with one bird, eh? :=}

We came across a snake fence on a ride out into the country on Sunday. They are interesting fences.
