This farm has been in the Maynard family since 1907. The group of farm buildings along the roadside illustrates the gradual modernization, alteration, and growth of the farm over time. The oldest barn, built ca.1900, has a 1950 dairy addition on its south facade. A sheep barn connected to the dairy addition was built before the dairy but after the main barn. Additional farm structures south of the main barn are indicative of the types of farm buildings commonly built after 1950. The Maynards raised dairy cattle as well as producing corn, oats, and hay.
