Ohio Valley Barn Salvage - Kurtz Stone Barn Frame

Ohio Valley Barn Salvage is pleased to offer for sale the Historic Kurtz Stone Barn Frame circa early 1810's. This rare all stone barn is one 1 of the earliest barns built in all of Ohio. We found a date stone chiseled with ‘’A J Smith: June 13, 1813.’’ We are trying to confirm this build date through the local historical society. This stone barn measured 50'x 75' with both gable ends of the barn being laid up in native sandstone. For a little local history , there were (3) of the rare stone barns built by the homesteader that acquired the property in the early 1800's. We speculate that they came from the Pennsylvania area where stone barns are more common. He had (3) sons and built 3 identical barns. Locals state that 1 of the barns burnt down many years ago. The other barn is still standing and in good condition. The frame that we are selling will measure 49' wide x73' in length. The OVBS team will add replacement matching siding girts on the gable ends of the barn where the stone was originally laid. On the bank wall we will extend the frame to 7' to match the cantilever extension to highlight the amazing features of this barn. Some of the amazing early barn building features to be found in this 1 of a kind frame: #1 The primary tie beams extend 24' beyond the upright. Instead of cutting the end square they left the end just as the tree was felled with the chop marks at the ends of the tie beams. #2 Beautiful scribe marking on each mortise and tenon connection. #3 Very rare reversed tapered primary uprights at the 3 center bents. They taper from 8'' the bottom to 16' wide , where the tie beam nest onto the upright then extends the additional 8'' for the connection to the mid rafter plate. SOOOOO impressive! #4 Beautiful craftsmanship weaving the hay ladders into the wind bracing #5 Some great 2 sided original pole rafters that highlight the ceiling in this barn. OVBS dismantled the frame in May of 2023 and it is in dry storage. We have CAD drawings available to view. This is truly 1 of the greatest early barns built in Ohio. Since I know where the other 1 is, I am not able to ''The only one you ever see'' but 1 of 2 ever built is a pretty accurate statement. Enjoy the photos of the dismantling process.
