Barn Renovation

The Barn

 

Stone wall of barn

The barn appears on tax records from the late 1700’s. A fire took part of it, so that some of the barn dates into the 1800’s. The newest part is likely an addition from the early 1900’s. We have no idea how old the shed is, but we suspect it is also a mix of two time periods. 

Many barn windows were covered up with stones.  The barn was around during the Fries Rebellion, where the locals were taxed based on how many windows they had, so homeowners proceeded to cover them up or get rid of them. Two side stone walls of the barn are examples of how they did this.
