This magnificent original log beam barn would make an impressive and solid cottage or guest house for you and your family to enjoy in years to come~ constructed from white oak trees on a southside Virginia farm in the late 1800s, this solid log beam barn has been in its current location on the family’s farm for 110 + years.
The family descendants and present owners tell us the barn was originally built down on the creek below near the grist mill after the Civil War’s conclusion, circa 1869. According to family land deeds and map notes of transfer, this original log beam barn was moved up to the present high ground knoll between 1878 and 1903.
