2510 E. Loy Road Piqua, Ohio
The family selected this pattern because they own a small business called “Baskets-n-Such” and some family members collect Longaberger Baskets. The current owners purchased the property in 1979 from the Hirsch family, who used it for livestock, hay, straw & machinery storage. In 1982 they added a fruit orchard.
The original part of the barn, which was probably built in early 1900s, was 30 ft. x 50 ft. and is constructed of hand hewn logs, and the frame is pinned together with wooden pins, mostly original materials. Two lean-to’s and two granaries were added to the original structure in 1980. It also has straw and hay mow. The barn has been used for numerous 4-H Halloween parties.
