The Bruno barn is unique among Tompkins County's barns. This 100' x 40', six-bay basement barn was built in 1908 for W.B. McClintock. It was the first steel-frame barn built in Tompkins County by the Groton Bridge Company. The steel frame and central interior steel loft space allowed the barn to have a massive 40' high open space for loose hay storage. Other interesting, and increasingly rare features of this barn, are the slate roof and metal ventilators.
