Inscription.  The Harmonist Society built the stone foundation of this barn in 1805, as part of a sheep shed for its growing flock. It served the Harmonists until they left Butler County in 1814. The barn was enlarged in the mid-1800's by David Ziegler, son of local Mennonite pioneer, Abraham Ziegler. In 1999, the Harmony Museum purchased the property, preserving one of the oldest barns west of the Allegheny Mountains. It is available for event rental at HarmonyMuseum.org.
