The Great Stone Barn a Shaker Relic

The Great Stone Barn as the name implies is a massive structure.  This structure was constructed by the Shakers and it was the largest barn in the country.  Having seen it, I can attest to the fact that it is massive.

Located in New Lebanon NY, a town where you will find many Shaker relics.  Unfortunately in 1972 this Great Stone Barn was destroyed by a fire.  Although the stonewall still stands, I noticed from a sign posted in front of the building that the State of NY was involved with the stabilization of the structure.

I really wanted to get inside and walk around put it was posted so I could only look in.  I am always amazed at the structures that were constructed without the gizmos available today.
