Significance: Melrose Creole Barn was constructed circa 1810 as a single room storage barn surrounded on four sides by a hipped roof gallery. Although the central room was floored on piers and beams, the gallery had an earth floor. In the mid-19th century the storage room was extended to include the end galleries. A major restoration in 1996 by John Robbins preserved its configuration; the flooring and gallery posts were replaced and the gallery floor bricked.
