Significance: The Shaker Church Family Cow Barn, built in 854, as noted in polychrome slate on the roof, is one of the largest remaining Shaker barns. It was designed and constructed in the simple, functional manner characteristic of Shaker structures. Traditional in its construction methods, the barn had an innovative plan designed for maximum convenience and efficiency. New machinery and dairy practices were introduced here to improve the products and increase productivity. Although altered, the barn retains many original features.
