Barn Rehabilitation

Repaired dormers and windows on the historic barn

The following photos show the 1882 barn after its interior rehabilitation. Damaged flooring, floor joists, and support pillars were replaced with recycled timbers and boards from barns and buildings of the same time period.

The basement and middle levels of the barn are open for experiencing in person, but the top floor is not accessible. However, below are photos from inside the top floor for your viewing. What a magnificent piece of craftsmanship!!!
