Barn Foundation #6

This structure is a coursed stone foundation for a barn. It was built by the staff at Historic Richmond Town in the area bounded by Center Street, Arthur Kill Road, and Richmond Road. It is appropriate for an early 19th-century English-style barn.

The foundation was constructed using stones from a barn on the Eith farm, which was located on Richmond Avenue in New Springville. It was intended to support a barn to be reconstructed using historic timbers of a 19th-century barn from another site, a farm owned by Henry and Mary Elizabeth Crocheron in what is today's Travis. However, the historic timbers were too deteriorated to allow for reassembly, and the barn was not completed.
