Weissmann Barn

Christen K. Weismann came to the United States from Copenhagen, Denmark in 1884. After two years working the coal mines of Pennsylvania, he homesteaded this property in 1886. The barn was built in the late 1800s or early 1900s as a multi-purpose barn. It was not only the shelter for the 12 to 14 horses that provided the capacity to run the 720-acre farm, it was also the milking parlor for the family cows and provided storage the hay to feed to the animals. Weismann also built numerous other buildings to support the farm, as well as an elegant brick residence in 1904 that also remains today.
