Gunstock Barn Frame

25 X 40 | 1760s | Pawlet, Vermont

This unique barn was on the property of the second oldest house in Pawlet, VT, incorporated in 1761. It is called a Gunstock frame because the posts that hold it up are tapered from bottom to top in order to allow two timbers to join and overlap at the top of the post. This rare and special barn was up when they signed the Declaration of Independence!
