A double pen log barn, surrounded on three sides by sheds. Apparently, these sheds were planned during construction, as several logs extend beyond the walls to support the roof. The hewed logs are steeple-notched and unchinked.
Though associated with James McCoy’s home, this barn may predate his ownership; Joseph McCoy improved much of the farm before his 1811 death, and perhaps built this barn between 1796 and 1810. In Ohio, the large log barn enjoyed its greatest popularity during the first third of the 19th century.
