This building is actually a corn-crib. We are not sure when her grandpa built it but it seems by the type of structure, that it must have been in the 30's or 40's.
My wife's parents moved into a small house out back when they got married in 1948 and farmed as partners with their parents for a number of years.
Like most farms in 1948 they had 12 cows and 12 sows.
When my wife and I moved here in 2000, I converted this corn-crib into a horse barn. My dad-in-law was also a plasterer for a living. He stuccoed the outside of the crib making it very tight and useful as a horse barn.
