Steamboat Springs Barn

Steamboat Springs Barn


Colorado Icon

Known as the Butterfly Barn, this beautiful old barn is a landmark in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  Steamboat is a popular ski resort on the west side of the Rockies.  It’s also a lovely and interesting historic town, with a full selection of summer activities.  The barn has deteriorated further since I took the photos from which I painted this.  As of February 2015, the town’s Historic Development Commission was considering options for preserving and/or moving the barn, or simply letting it continue as is.
