The attached pictures are of some wood that came from a barn in Central Indiana. Not sure how old the barn was. The seller of the wood thinks it might be old growth yellow pine...

Any guesses?
that would be my guess also, that sure will have a nice smell when you cut it, nice looking wood the sap probly has long gone, that is the gum stuff that come's out of pine

Thanks for the feedback from everyone. Sounds like it could be a lot of things, but yellow pine is a top contender. I also questioned whether the wood grain looked close enough to be old growth, which is why I brought the question here.

Thanks for all your help!

As an update for anyone who is interested, I emailed the pictures to someone at a local mill and he thought it looked to orange for yellow pine, and looked closer to Douglas Fir to his eyes. Someone mentioned fir as a possibility here as well.
