  • Barn (Julie Nicoletta)

The three-bay barn is the largest of its type remaining in the Carson Valley. Its exterior form, with a broken roofline and three openings, reflects the three bays of the interior. The main posts and beams are hand hewn, with mortise-and-tenon joints pegged with wooden dowels. Vertical plank siding covers the exterior. Dangberg sheltered workhorses as well as his prized show horses here. The center bay has a woodplank floor; the flanking bays have dirt floors.
