During a multi-year archeological study of the Best Farm, several previously unrecorded structures were discovered, including an addition to the stone barn, a privy, a cistern, and an icehouse.
Stone Barn Addition
The stone barn at the Best Farm likely dates to the late eighteenth century, and is one of the battlefield's most unique structures. In 2002, archeologists discovered the remains of a 25 foot by 35 foot mortared-stone addition on its south elevation. Recovered artifacts suggest the addition was constructed in the early or mid-nineteenth century, and also indicate that it was damaged by fire.
