The Barn
-- 1792 --

This is what it looks like around here when the warm weather arrives.

Nestled on a wooded acre in Villanova,

my Pennsylvania bank barn was built twenty-one years

after the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Anecdotal evidence indicates it was converted into

a home in the 1920s, a process which left intact

most of the original timber and stone.

I have lived here since 1977, and it truly feels like home.

The Japanese maple provides the first splash of color.
