Schwenkfelder Barn Move / Restoration

by Jeff Reimold | Friday August 20, 2021 | Agriculture

It’s a rare opportunity to move an old barn to a new site, 20 miles from where it was originally built in the 1820’s! Our construction team dismantled the barn, beam-by-beam, carefully marked each piece, and moved it to the barn’s new home, the Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center. There, our construction team reassembled the barn cutting replacement timbers from other old barns for the rotted timbers all while ensuring its preservation and functionality would be a fit for the center.
