    The north barn consists of horse stalls, which is believed that only horses were kept in there. The South barn lower ground was used for cattle, possibly for meat and milk supplies. This barn also has an upstairs and a basement. There was another barn made from stone, east side of the north and south barn, this barn was built first before the house in 1902 and is believed that they used the barn to keep animals in and that it helped built the house in 1831.
