1867, later. Northeast side of College Dr. and Ridge Rd.

These stone, brick, and wood barns and other buildings were a part of a large farm established in 1867 by retired English Army officer Capt. A. J. Ashmore. The long barn, with its stone first floor and dormered gable roof, exhibits the formality of a classically designed dwelling.
