It only takes a few extra touches to make a barn look like a barn, and not like any other building.

First, the roof needs to have a bend in it. (Maybe so that the snow would slide off easily?). Then the windows need to all be up high to account for all the stacked hay, etc. that is inside. And finally, a bright cross on double doors let everyone know exactly what kind of classic building this is.

I love that the most traditional barns are bright red, as they just make such a colorful drawing.
