The Barn is 150 years old and part of a number of out houses on the Mullen farm. The Barn was used for storing and thrashing corn. Housed in the first floor of the Barn was a thrashing mill, outside there was a circular mound called a ring course where the horse would pull the mechanics of the mill, this area has been restored and now is a tranquil patio area.
