Archeological Determination of the Configuration and Size of the Arnold Barn and Mitigation of Construction-Related Impacts, Lincoln Home National Historic Site
Author(s): Forest Frost
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.
