1. Kromer Barn Marker
Inscription.  Construction: Post and Beam

Each oak board was notched (tenon) and was fitted into a carved out hole (mortise) in each upright post. The mortise and tenon was held together with a hand- carved oak peg.

During World War II, 1941-1945, the US Government confiscated the Kromer Farm. It became part of the Plum Brook Ordnance Works, known today as the NASA Plum Brook Station. The barn was saved by moving it to a nearby farm. The other buildings on the Kromer Farm were bulldozed by the government. The barn was given to the Village by Jack Kromer in 1989. It is current used for storage.
