Horseshoe Barn Annex
Constructed on-site: 1957
The Museum's collection of 19th- and early 20th-century horse-drawn vehicles was initially displayed in Horseshoe Barn. With the addition of more than 150 wagons, sleighs, coaches, and fire equipment, the collection outgrew its original home. The Horseshoe Barn Annex, constructed to accommodate the acquisitions, is a combination of new materials and old timber salvaged from early agricultural buildings.
The Horseshoe Barn Annex exhibits stagecoaches, farm and trade vehicles, and a Conestoga wagon.
Erected by the Shelburne Museum.
