The Delaware Barn was raised the first time 175 years ago. Constructed from hand-hewn timbers of oak and walnut, it has withstood everything that has happened, since 1840. That is somewhere north of 62,000 thousand days of continuous being, without burning down or blowing away in a storm, or having someone decide it’s too much work to keep around. I am amazed that it still exists, and today these Amish craftsmen are raising this barn for the second time, on our farm in Alexandria.
Thanks for looking!
