THE RESTORATION OF JABEZ NEWHALL’S TAVERN

CHAPTER 10 -- OUTBUILDINGS: SHED, MILK HOUSE, AND BARN -- p. 1


Attached to the front corner of the large barn were two smaller buildings. On the far left was a crudely constructed, three-stall shed, which we used as a garage for several years, despite the fact that rain and melting snow turned its floor into a messy, treacherous, and sometimes disabling mud hole.

  


Connecting the shed to the big barn was a small cement-block structure, which appears to have served as clinic, office, and milk room. When we bought the property this room was filled with a bewildering array of bottles, broken pieces of wood, bits of damp insulation, and skeletons of a cat and several rodents.
