Wilson Barn Restoration

The Shelton History Center is located in Huntington.

An old red barn was on the property when the land was donated to the Historical Society by Mrs.Wisner Wilson.

The 1860 barn was restored in the 1990's and these photos are from a remodeling of the barn in 1998.

Volunteers and History Center members did all the work. See pictures of the farmhouse.
