The German Barn is a splendid, historic hay barn with massive red oak timbers skillfully fitted together.
Like so many historic barns (including the Scottish Barn), the German Barn has been moved. Reputedly, it was brought to the Nipmoose Farm in the early 1900s. Its original site and size remain unknown.
Although the German Barn dates to the mid 1800s, its style of framing resonates with an earlier period of construction. One feature in particular stands out. It is the placement of double cross beams in each section. This design feature is believed to have been introduced in America by builders who emigrated from Germany. More
