Inscription. This pre-Revolutionary Dutch barn was built by the Wortendyke family. Once common in the Hudson River area, the barn is one of the few remaining in this country. Broader than deep, the structure is entirely supported by four H-frames tied with massive anchor beams. Front and rear wagon doors permit through access to the threshing floor, which is flanked by side aisles for animals.
