Point of Interest Details

This farmland has been in the Reed family since the 1830s. The brothers Levi and Truman Reed once owned all of the land between Turkey Hill and Game Farm roads. The original barn at this location was struck by lightning and burned down in the late 1910s. The present barn was built in the 1920s by Henry Reed at a cost of approximately $3,000. Reed reused parts in the previous foundation but built this barn higher than the original barn. Logs from the farm and the surrounding woods were used in its construction. The barn was used as part of a dairy farm operation until the 1970s.
