New Richmond in St. Croix County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Blacksmith Shop (Log Barn)
New Richmond Heritage Center Pioneer Village
The log barn was donated to the Center by Agnes and Anthony Tamoshaitis in memory of Agnes' parents, Albert and Alice Ailts. It comes from their last home and homestead, located in the Town of Stanton, about 8 miles northeast of New Richmond, near St. Bridget's Catholic Church on County Road T. It was probably built by a James Lee, around or before 1875. It was the only barn along that road at the time.
The roof of the building and the logs of the walls were moved separately and reassembled at the Center.
Erected by New Richmond Heritage Center.
