Virtual Tour Limestone Barn
"A large stone barn and stable is in process of erection, but when the improvements and buildings contemplated by this gentleman are completed...." (Strong City Independent, October 15, 1881)
"It will take 5,000 pounds of tin to cover the mammoth barn of S.F. Jones on Fox Creek, and the tinners are laying it on." (Strong City Independent, December 24, 1881)
The roof is a modified gable (wall area perpendicular to the roof ridge) covered with shingles. The window openings are rectangular with flat smoothed lintels (beams over a doorway) and sills. The barn doors are simple, shallow arched lintels. The limestone is rubble stone masonry with smooth quoin blocks at the corners.
