Dairy Barn

-A A +A
c. 1885. 1288 Victory Hwy.

Across the way is a fine late-nineteenth-century dairy barn with bracketed eaves. It housed the Wanskuck Company herd (and probably that of the preceding mill owner) to supply the village with milk—a common patriarchal benefit in the better-managed mill villages, although the dairy barns are seldom preserved.
