Historic Significance

Architectural description:

This is a 1 story shed. The main facade faces east with its ridge-line perpendicular to Hamburg Road, which runs approximately north-south at this point. The main entry in the east gable-facade is a pair of swinging hinged doors which encompass the entire width of the fa├žade, except for the gable attic, which is blank. The south eave-facade has an off-center single six-over-six double hung window. The north eave-facade is identical. The west gable-facade has a six-over-six window in the center. The shed has unpainted vertical flush-board and a deteriorated wood shingle roof. The foundation is mortared field-stone.

Historical significance:

A shed is typically a simple, single-story structure in a back garden or on an allotment that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop. Sheds vary considerably in the complexity of their construction and their size, from small open-sided tin-roofed structures to large wood-framed sheds with shingled roofs, windows, and electrical outlets. Sheds used on farms or in industry can be large structures.
