Barn from the Top Side

 

The barn was constructed so that the middle story was at the level of the road.  This permitted a team and load of  hay to drive directly into the barn without the need for a ramp.  Siding for the early barns and sheds were rough-sawed, unpainted lumber. 

 

This view shows the lane from the main road terminating in the barnyard.  A gate can be opened to continue into the fields.
