Summary

The Master Plan (1970) of the Lincoln Horne National Historic Site calls for the

reconstruction of the Arnold Barn using available historic documentation and information derived

from controlled archeological investigations. The Site's management staff seeks to use all sources

of evidence to ensure that the barn appears as it did circa 1860. Excavations at the site revealed

evidence of two barns. The earlier rectangular barn was replaced with a smaller square barn.

The sequence of construction has been established. The dates of construction, however, are not

documented historically and have not been established from archeological evidence for either

structure. Monitoring of ground disturbance by a qualified archeologist is suggested during later

stages of the project.
