Building Interruptus

Notice that this barn is part stone and part lumber. Most people wouldn't give it a second thought because there are barns that might have stone ends but filled out with lumber in between.

That's not the case with this barn. If you look from left to right, you'll see that the barn becomes lumber to the end. That's because the man who started the barn was killed in accident and his son finished the barn with lumber.

The details are sketchy. They were handed down through the family, but those who might remember the oral history are now deceased.

Just another Pennsylvania barn story.
