Friends of Ohio Barns Fall Picnic

Fall Picnic to be held at the Kindleberger Stone Barn Farm Saturday, September 20th, 2014, 11 am to 5 pm.

Located near Clarington, Ohio, the Kindleberger Stone Barn Farm is an Historic treasure. The house and the barn on this property were included in the National Register of Historic Places on February 8, 1980 and were adorned with a historic marker in 2002. A treasure it is as the stones of the walls, which vary in size from four to seven feet long, were hauled from the nearby quarry using horses and wagon by stonemason Frederick Kindleberger’s children, William and Mary, and then set into place with a 40 foot hickory pole. The barn is 35’ by 60’ with 45 foot 12”x12” posts supporting the rafters. Both the house and the barn are constructed using the sandstone from the area. The house was built in 1872 while the barn was finished in 1883.

The Kindleberger Stone Barn Farm is located at 50037 German Ridge Rd. in Beallsville, OH 43716-9533 near Clarington in Monroe County. Gary and Marjorie Baumberger own and operate the farm and have graciously allowed us to picnic on their beautiful grounds and see their architectural wonders. They were our Friends of Ohio Barns Barn of the Year winners in the Agriculture category and received their award at the Ohio Barn Conference in Knox County this past April.

Lunch will be served at 12 pm. Friends of Ohio Barns will supply the main course meat and do the grilling but please be sure to bring a covered dish to share, your beverage of choice and your own place settings. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring your camera! Please bring your own chairs.

Marjorie and Gary have offered their place to us for the entire day so come early to explore if you would like.

Please RSVP by September 15th by sending an email to Sarah Woodall at [email protected] or call Sarah at 330-856-9053 with your name and number attending so we can plan accordingly.

Hope to see you there!
