The barn has 4 horse stalls, lockable tack room, equipment storage, and a HUGE hay loft (previous owner used this as a party barn).  The VERY RARE wooden silo (c.1870 - c.1890) is made like a barrel: Cyprus staves with iron rings.





Summer Kitchen


The original summer kitchen and smokehouse has been turned into an all-weather outdoor patio.









The outhouse probably isn't original, but was used until indoor plumbing was installed in the home in the 1950s.

Welcome to Active Rain Ken. Congratulations on joining the game here. Awesome old home!

We joined AR in November, primarily to use the outside blog feature which has definitely helped us get better placement on Google searches within subdivisions and neighborhoods.

A side benefit of AR is the ability to learn from other agent’s social media creativity and make friends for future referrals. One good way to learn to use AR fast, is to read the blog posts of the AR staff and the “ambassadors”.

Peace, and Success in the New Year,
