Free early 1900s barn in Maine


Towns all over (including mine) are in the habit of moving old buildings like this on trucks to fill out their various historic sites and museums. I don’t think my town has any buildings from outside the area, but almost every one of our historic structures has been moved to a different site. I’ve definitely been to places down south where their “historic villages” were almost entirely composed of buildings out of New England from mis-matched dates. I’m surprised this guy couldn’t sell the building.

During my recent renovation, I installed a grey board wall of 100 year old barn wood. It looks amazing, but the important point is that it was $20-$30 per 6’ board. It’s about $5 sq/ft.

How much do you think that barn is worth?
