How often do you see a 3 story barn with a ground level entrance to ALL 3 floors ??? Built in 1788 according to the date carved in the stone foundation.

in my youth i saw one often it is still in use today as a storage building. Originally cows in the front lower level, grain/feed in the second level from the west side and hay in upper level from the rear.

I was particularly intrigued with the Round Barns in and around Binghamton NY, along the original Route 9. The highway would snake around the barns, so that they were not disturbed on their original foundations.

I have always been a fan of old barns and enjoy looking at the different building designs in different parts of the country.

I am very sorry to see these fine buildings disappearing at an alarming rate here in America's dairy land.

No harm at all John.

I take it you have been there if you recognize it.

Jim did take care of it, but the boys are thinking of getting the Amish in to brace it. The foundation is starting to lean in some.
