A Traditional American Barn
This barn was built in the late 1850s by Thomas and Mary Coyle. It originally stood in the old Trinity Center and was used to shelter horses at the Holland House Hotel, on the road to Oregon.

Rescued From Destruction
In 1959, when flooding of old Trinity Center was imminent with the building of Trinity Dam, the owner of the barn, William Foster, Jr., donated it to the state. The barn was carefully dismantled and reassembled on this site. Go inside to see the long original beams and mortise and tenon joints secured with wooden pegs.
