Description:

The barn is very similar to the Eason Tweed barn and very likely built by the same builder(s). The primary difference between the two barns is the four log pens instead of the two log pens of the Tweed barn. The loft level has no flooring and no apparent structure in place to support flooring. Joe Tweed, who may have built the “Tweed” barns was born 1855 and died 1939. There is another barn of this design farther up the Shelton Laurel valley near Allegheny.
Very little is known about this barn’s history.
