The Milking Barn
We called this the cow barn when I was a kid growing up because this is where my dad milked the cows. Today I call it the first barn because it is the first one you come come to when walking up from the house. I did milk the goats in the front section one summer. You can see how the gabled middle section is different from the rest of the barn. At one time, this part was a shed at the school house next door. When the school no longer had a use for it Mr. Kerby had it moved up the drive way to this location to be used as a barn. He then added on to it, making a cement floor in the front part for milking. I guess it should be called the milking barn.
