This barn typifies “the “Gable-Front” type barn, sometime referred to as a “Yankee Barn,” a style which grew in popularity in New England around 1830. Greek Revival style lead to the realignment of many New England homes after 1820. This realignment called for the gable end of the house and later barns, to face the road. This design change allowed for much larger barns to be built by simply adding more bays to the gable ends. A farmer could therefore add on to the barn as the needs for the farm grew.

Maps of the area show that the farm may have been owned by Mrs S. B. Barnham in 1858 and J. G. Holmes in 1982.”
