In many cases, historic structures have lost their original purpose, or deteriorated beyond repair. A few examples of this would be a family farm with a dairy barn no longer being used to store anything but old hay, or a residential carriage shed with a roof that has gone too long without good maintenance.
Rather than destroying the fine workmanship and history associated with these majestic buildings, they can be re-used whole for a new purpose, or their materials recycled to create an entirely new structure. This process, referred to as "Adaptive Re-Use", is far preferable to the all too common practice of bulldozing them and burning the materials.
