I continue today with some interior and detail views of the Amos Hinshaw barn in southern Randolph County, North Carolina. Built sometime around 1880, the design is of a type not normally seen locally with it’s massive two story design and brick ramp leading into the second story.
A pile of horse “single trees” along with plows and implements on the ground floor where livestock was housed and equipment stored.
Notice the strips of wood on the floor of the barn ramp to provide traction for the horses/mules bringing hay into the loft.
