description

Summary

Significance: The Riddle Barn is an example of log technology used in the twentieth century to construct farm outbuildings. The log construction, crude in comparison to that of most nineteenth century log houses, was used primarily as an economic expedient to save milling costs. The small barn, enlarged with a frame addition, was used to house livestock and store some crops from the mid-1930s to the mid-1970s.
