Fox Stone Barn

The ready availability of locally quarried sandstone allowed property owners to construct simple stone barns at a time when wood frame barn designs were much more common throughout the state.  It is one of the best surviving examples of this barn type in Boulder County.  The property is associated with the Agricultural Resources of Boulder County Multiple Property Submission.
