Relationship to surroundings

This barn is one of a series along the road owned and maintained by the water company.  Its existance reinforces the formerly agricultural nature of the area. The barn sits near Black Rock Turnpike and now acts as a market for the orchards of the Aquarion Water Company (formerly Bridgeport Hydraulic). The road is surrounded by state land and water company land, some of which is still given over to orchards.
