Elm Cove (James and Anna Clark) Barn

Elm Cove (James and Anna Clark) Barn, 26581 Route J16, west of Stockport

A well-appointed and well-kept gambrel bank barn variously dated to 1903 and ca. 1914. Hand-hewn timbers and the use of square nails point to the earlier date for at least some of its materials, but it also incorporates milled lumber and horizontal siding rather than the conventional board-and-batten. It has many unusual features, including stall bars made of ax handles and stairways running from the basemen to the loft. It housed dairy cattle, hogs, and horses.
