In the first quarter of the nineteenth century, this 30' x 40' post-and-beam barn was constructed from local timbers. The barn had been expanded over the years to meet changing agricultural needs. When the Hornbuckles acquired the property in 1980, the building was in serious disrepair. Rather than tear it down, the owners chose to restore it in 1991 to resemble its original appearance.
