This building originally located 1500 feet east of this location and housing livestock, was built by a pioneer family from this area in the early 1870's. Once part of the historic Bodega Rancho, this land was known as the Rancho Paridiso and later became the site of the Moscow Mill. It is said President Ulysses S. Grant stabled his horses in the barn. In 1919, the Christian Brothers of California purchased the land and converted the hay loft into a chapel and the horse stalls into a recreation room for their retreats. By 1973, the unused and aging barn was offered to George Casini, who due to his fond childhood memories of playing in the barn, moved it to its current location and renamed it Moscow Barn. He then began restoration and preservation of the barn. It is now used as a meeting and recreation hall.
