  • James Bush Barn (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

This grade barn with stone walls and gable roof was built as part of the James Bush stock farm. The gabled side elevation is most impressive, with two arched openings that each serve a different level of the barn. Nearby, the farmhouse is a small cottage constructed of overscaled large blocks of stone.
