When restoration of the House began the original barn was literally falling down. It was rebuilt to conform to photographs of the original and in a style consistent with barns built throughout the Midwest depicting the mid to late 1800â€™s.
Over the years, wood tools and farm equipment have been donated to us. In 2000, the barn was established as a display area to allow visitors to gain an understanding of the hard life faced by early farmers. A plow, rake and fertilizer spreader are among the implements on display.
Over the past several years the barn has been enhanced. It now offers a spacious, quaint area which is ideal for parties, gatherings, celebrations and other activities. Amenities provided include air conditioning, heating, restrooms, an icebox, a piano, tables, chairs, ample parking and an outside bar-b-que pit. Our grounds and garden provide an enchanting background for photos.
