Historic Stone Farmhouse in Bucks County

Restoring the 18th Century Barn

The barn is said to be built by a local pioneering family that came from Germany and settled in Upper Bucks County. Known as “The Michael Ahlum, (1760-1845) House“, son of John Jacob Ahlum, by the PA Historical Commission, it dates to around 1780, with parts that appear built in the 1800’s.  The barn pre-dates the house, which was built in 1860 (PA Historical Commission lists it as 1840.) There was a log house here and a workshop listed on the tax records we found dating from the late 1700’s. Today there is a shed/workshop but it is unknown if it is the original. 

Research on the property can be read in the Michael Ahlum House story.
