An earlier 19th century Church Family Barn complex was destroyed by fire in 1916. The barns were rebuilt by the Shakers the same year. The barns are located on the western edge of the Church Family property, and the complex includes this main barn with hay mow, a cow barn, manure shed and, previously, a silo.
