Point of Interest Details

The Roe barn is an example of the type of small farmstead that existed within the village of Danby during the 1800s. Oriented to the road, the five-bay bank barn may have been built ca. 1870 on the foundation of an earlier barn. The decorative Italianate-style cornice brackets are rarely seen on barns in Tompkins County. Stanchions for dairy cows were used in the basement, probably in the early 1900s, but the barn has not been in commercial agricultural use since the 1930s.
