The Heller Barn

Considered to be the oldest structure on the Heller Homestead, until 1998, this all-stone structure had a slate-shingled roof and  a 2,800 square-foot interior space. Most barns in America were partially constructed of stone, in the sides and foundation of the structure—and the remaining parts constructed of wood. Michael Heller’s barn was constructed completely of native stone, quarried along the Saucon Creek.

Unfortunately, it  was mostly brought down after a severe storm.
