The Copeland Barn.
December 1, 2010 § Leave a comment
A few years ago, my parents moved into a house that stood on land that had once been a farm. For a couple hundred years, The Copeland family had lived in a large farmhouse on the property with rooms enough for the entire family and the farmhands. The farm also comprised of several barns, all of which have since been torn down except for one.
My father believes the barn dates back to 1810. Originally, Copeland Farm was a dairy farm, and the barn pictured above housed the cows. The cows were kept on the lower level, and hay and other feed could be trucked in through the large sliding door on the front. Later, the Copelands began making, bottling and selling cider, spring water and ginger ale and eventually owned a Pepsi bottling franchise. The cattle barn ended up being used for storage.
My parents are currently in the process of renovating the barn. More pictures to come…
