|Our Farm Is Old But Our Barns Are New
When we bought the Liberty Tree House in 1991, we thought someday we might have a working barn. After all, we had 21 acres, though mostly woods and swamp, and the place had been a farm before. There was even an old barn here, circa 1800, but the ground floor was converted to a dining room for the catering business that the Whites had run for many years. We initially planned to connect the old barn to the house, and to finish the space for things the main house lacked, like guest bedrooms and a garage. In the end we took the old barn down and used its boards and timbers to build the Carriage House.
In 1997, we began to make plans to build a new barn. It would have four stalls, two for us and two for our sister, who lives just down the road. Then it grew, until we finally built 15 stalls and an indoor arena, which we opened in December 1998.
At the same time, we built a second building for David's tractor and sawmill, and called it the Tractor Barn. Now it holds four more stalls and we call it the Pony Barn.
