1. The Main Barn Marker
Inscription.  The main barn was built in the early 1940s and has been the center of Harlinsdale operations ever since.

The barn was the domain of the handlers and trainers of the Walking Horses. Each day every horse would be groomed and then worked and groomed again.

This process ensured steady improvements of the animals to result in the best horses for shows, sales, and breeding.

This walk was created by Girl Scout Sophia Saliby from Troop 2701 for her Gold Award Project.
