THE LOG BARN

One hundred yards west of the Farmhouse sits an original log barn built sometime around 1850. This barn sits in its original position alongside the remains of The Old Moscow Highway (later known as Dixie Overland Highway and then Highway 80). Moscow Highway led to the ferry crossing at Moscow Landing on the Tombigbee River to enter Sumter County. The Log Barn was hand hewn from river birch logs. On the north side of the structure, two stalls for mules were constructed in a lean-to fashion. It is being carefully restored for future use as a chapel.
