The Cow Shed
The Friends plan to use the Cow Shed for a welcome and history center. A portion of the 2013 Somerset county Historic Preservation Grant was used to install a new tarp to protect the cowshed until future grant money is available to restore the building. A portion of the funds from the 2011 Somerset County Historic Preservation Grant was used to create a preservation plan for the cow shed. A grant application is currently pending to provide funding to begin the restoration and adaptive re-use of the cowshed using original construction techniques. In the mean time we will continue to monitor the structure’s condition regularly to assure that temporary shoring and protection remain sound and in place to minimize deterioration.
