Building/structure dates: 1850
Significance: The Blendon estate barn contributes to the significance of the Caves Valley National Register Historic District. The Register district nomination cites the barn as "a contributing resource with a high level of integrity and historic and agricultural significance to the nomination." Built as an outlying hay barn on the large "Caves" estate by the Carroll family, the structure recalls the system of satellite fields and outbuildings created by the farming gentry of Baltimore County during the 19th century. The barn architecturally is significant in Baltimore County as a largely unaltered bank barn with Tuscan Villa cupola and arched Italianate louvered vents.
