A Restored Early 1800s New England Barn

I knew this place, I knew it well, every sound and every smell. 
- David Mallett
The barn is fashioned with post and beam construction....

...mortise-and-tenon joinery.....

....held with wooden pegs.

The sizable posts and beams are American Chestnut.

It was built in the early 1800s with an early 1900s addition.
