Inscription.  This barn, was constructed by John Calvin Stewart on his farm, the former Hartwood Plantation of Robert C. Rodgers, II. The barn was located across Hartwood Road from its present location. It replaced an older barn that burned.

In 1993, the barn was threatened with destruction. In response to concerns in the community, Dr. H. Stewart Jones invited the community to move the Little Red Bar to her property. It remains there now as a community landmark and as a symbol of Dr. Jones' commitment to historic preservation.
 
Erected by Stewart Jones Charitable Trust.
