Point of Interest Details

One of the two barns on Steep Hollow Farm is a rare remaining example of a tobacco barn in the county. The four-bay barn was built by the Davis family ca. 1895, designed specifically for the drying and storage of tobacco. The sills were hemlock and the siding was white pine. Sections of the barn's siding are open, allowing air to flow through the barn. This farm once had a sawmill, flour mill, and cider press. The Davis family cemetery is also on the Steep Hollow Farm.
