Sorry guys, I have lived her for all of my life and this is not a barn. It was formerly a dance hall. When the church that was next door (a bit right beyond the white bales) washed out in the 1935 flood, it became the Unitarian church. After disbanding as a church, it became a community center in the 1950's and 1960's. It is now used solely for storage and for the pigeons and bees to have a home in.

I grew up in Whitney Point, born in 1964, lol, I remember this house. I think it was build to resemble a castle. I remember the front steps at first was an actual draw bridge! There might have been a moat! lol
Looks like an european castle - in Romania

Betatakin Ruin is located in Betatakin Canyon near the park's Visitor Center. Betatakin, a Navajo word, meaning "ledge house" was active about AD 1250 to 1286 and was home to as many as 100 to 125 people. The village was abandoned about AD 1300. The Hopi people who currently live about 50 miles to the south and west are believed to be descendants of the Ancestral Puebloans who lived in this region. Archeologists "discovered" the ruins in 1909, and the structures were "stabilized" in 1917 by the Smithsonian Institution. Most people who visit the park only visit the Betatakin Ruin overlooks. However, small groups can hike into the canyon to visit the ruins on daily ranger-led tours.
The Phelps mansion is a three story brick and stone mansion located on Court Street in Binghamton, New York. It was built in 1870 as the private home of Sherman D Phelps. Mr. Phelps was a successful business man, banker, Republican Elector for Abraham Lincoln, and mayor of the City of Binghamton. The building was designed by Isaac G. Perry who later became the chief architect for the New York State Capitol building in Albany, New York. The mansion was purchased in 1905 by the Monday Afternoon Club (a women's civic organization). The club constructed a large ballroom on the back of the mansion in 1905 and continues to hold its weekly meetings there to this day. In 1986 ownership of the mansion was transferred to The Phelps Mansion Foundation.
The Phelps Mansion was charted by the New York State Board of Regents as a museum in 2005
