Prior to 1870The original barn on the site is built, but is destroyed by fire.
1870 - Construction of the existing barn is completed.
1930 - The barn is abandoned when owners move their farmhouse and barn closer to the road when electric power comes to the valley. Remnants of the old farmhouse can still be seen as evidenced by the cellar hole near the road.
2001 - The Calfee/Davis family purchases the land and the dilapidated saltbox barn, one of the last non-conserved farms in the Mettowee Valley. Due to the poor condition of the structure, the debate is to take it down and salvage the timber frame and materials or complete a major renovation of the old barn. Before the contract closes for purchase, somebody steals the slate tiles from the roof!
