This barn was built by a Mr. Stone for the Graves family around 1890. It’s been a local favorite ever since and is an ongoing restoration project of the Sparta-Hancock County Historical Society.
The ornamental scrollwork makes the barn a unique treasure, especially in an urban setting. Barns were common in towns a hundred years ago, but to have one of this caliber survive the years is a real wonder.
