Barn

The barn was built in 1910 by the Longacre Brothers in northeast Banner County and donated to the Banner County Historical Society in 1990 by George and Marjorie Brown.  Lumber for the construction was hauled through Hubbards’ Gap with teams and wagons from suppliers in Minatare and other valley towns.

Moving this 32’ wide, 36’ long, 34’ high structure the 25 miles from the Brown ranch to the present site was started on a January morning at 8:30, and after moving under nearly 20 power lines, arrived at 5:00 p.m.

Several displays are under construction in the hay mow which will include a saddle shop and a carpenter shop.  A large barb wire display and other miscellaneous farm and ranch tools will soon be ready for viewing.
