Mendon Housing Authority Barn

    This barn, built in the early to mid-eighteen hundreds, is part of the Mendon Center Historic District
    which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  It provides a good example of historic
    building techniques and is representative of Mendon’s agricultural history.  It is a simple drive-through
    barn with a raised center and three well-crafted horse stalls as well as another stall used for livestock,
    probably a cow.  The architect states that because of the interior of the first level, the barn is “a jewel.”  

    The Mendon Historical Commission is attempting to fund the stabilization and restoration of this barn
    which belongs to the Mendon Housing Authority.  

    Unfortunately, since I wrote the paragraphs above, the barn was demolished.
