The pioneer's first concern after food and shelter for his family was shelter from the elements and wild animals for his livestock.

Hence the second construction project - the log barn. Some log barns were stables only (one story) with the walls chinked with mud, clay or manure. Others had a second story where hay could be stored and kept dry.

At the back of the museum grounds is a frame barn with displays of farm equipment and buggies such as the courting buggy shown here.

While in Mindemoya, also visit Jack's Agricultural Museum on Hwy 542. It has an extensive collection of agricultural machinery.
