This is a 1 ½-story three-bay eave-entry gable-roofed barn. The main eave-side faces south and the ridge-line of the barn is perpendicular to this portion of Long Hill Road, which runs approximately north-south. The main entry is a pair of centered exterior-sliding doors, approached by a slightly above-grade earth ramp. Above the doors, there is a fourteen-pane single row transom light. In the east corner there is a fixed eight-pane stable window. At the west corner, several courses of a mortared brick and concrete foundation are exposed. Two stone steps lead to a single exterior-swinging pass-through door in the west corner.
The west gable-end of the barn has a mortared brick and concrete foundation and two eight-over-eight double-hung windows in the main level. Two windows below the girt line siding divide and one in the gable attic match the window on the south eave-side. The east gable-end of the barn appears to have two fixed eight-pane windows in the main level and a matching window in the gable attic. There is a hay door above the girt line siding divide. The barn has verical flush-board siding painted red, with white muntin bars. The roof is covered with wood shingles.
The oldest barns still found in the state are called the "English Barn,” “side-entry barn,” “eave entry,” or a 30 x 40. They are simple buildings with rectangular plan, pitched gable roof, and a door or doors located on one or both of the eave sides of the building based on the grain warehouses of the English colonists' homeland. The name “30 by 40” originates from its size (in feet), which was large enough for 1 family and could service about 100 acres. The multi-purpose use of the English barn is reflected by the building's construction in three distinct bays - one for each use. The middle bay was used for threshing, which is separating the seed from the stalk in wheat and oat by beating the stalks with a flail. The flanking bays would be for animals and hay storage.
This well-maintained English-style barn is made of wood, and is located on the east side of the street. There is also a smaller outbuilding on the property. The barn has two visible entrances, one each on the north and south sides, and 5 windows on its west side. It is built on a foundation of bricks and mortar. The property is bordered by Long Hill Road on the west, and another road on the south which gives access to a newer development of homes.
1700's - owner stated barn was moved from Farmington at some point but not sure of date. Barn was restored. Also across the street is their property and an old cow parlor for milking. Restored, and used as a floral shop now.
