Daniel Stong's Grain Barn 1825
On its original location - Black Creek Pioneer Village

The barn has both Pennsylvania German and English influences in its construction. It is a single storey with double cribs or mows for grain storage. It has a large threshing floor in the centre which was used for threshing and winnowing. The building is cantilevered, that is the west side of the structure does not rest on the ground but has open space beneath it to provide shelter for storage or livestock. The log construction has intentional gaps between the timbers to allow adequate ventilation for the hay and grain crops stored within. Restored and opened to the public in 1960.
