About The Barn at Stark Farms

The Barn is a historic 230+ year old hand hewn, post and beam barn that was professionally tagged and dismantled in New Hampshire in the summer of 2013, trucked to Odessa later that year and painstakingly reconstructed over the next two and a half years.

The barn was built in the late 1700’s on the Stark Family Farm in Dunbarton, New Hampshire. John Stark, a General in the Continental Army, and his son Caleb both served with distinction in the Revolutionary War. General John Stark and his New Hampshire militia fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill, then the battle of Bennington and other battles; he also reinforced General George Washington’s tattered army in Delaware. General Stark served on the panel for the court martial of Major Benedict Arnold who was subsequently hung for treason. General Stark also penned the state motto for New Hampshire “live free or die”. A portrait of General Stark hangs in the White House and was donated by Jacquelin Kennedy, wife of the late President John F Kennedy.
