Stone Barn

This limestone barn was built in 1856. In the 1880s draft horses, bred by Dr. Bevington, were housed in the stone barn. During the first seven months of 1889, thirty-five train carloads of twenty horses each (seven hundred in all, at an average of $125 per horse) were shipped out of Madison County to eastern markets. Some of Dr. Bevington’s horses were undoubtedly included in these shipments.
