Significance: The barn consists of two almost equal sized cribs built at different times. They are separated by a breezeway as in the form of a "dog-trot," that is, two structures covered by one roof with a breezeway separating the two. The crib to the north is significant in the area of architecture because it is a rare example of a French Creole "piece sur piece" construction and is finished in a way that shows its earlier use as a cabin. This type of refined log cabin construction was in use from the early eighteenth to the mid nineteenth century. The crib to the south is of "poteaux -sur-solle" or post on sill or "colombage" construction with no infill. This structure shows circular saw marks, which dates it to 1840 at the earliest.
