The story

“Reading the signs” to forecast the weather was a talent many settlers developed. To assist, early barns were decorated with a weathervane and lightning rods. This farm was settled by Job Church. Being a butcher by trade, Job was one of the area’s early business men.  Built originally as a dairy barn, this is one of the few remaining barns that were repurposed as a tobacco barn.
