Barn partially turned into living quarters. Built by Solomon Carpenter in 1865, hence the name of the road.
Initially there were several hundreds of acres farmed, but Solomon died at the age of 47. His son took possession of the estate and a few hundred acres were allotted to his mother.
It was a working farm up until the end of WWII. The Beecher tornado came thru just north of the barn in 1953 and took out all of the maple trees that was one staple of the farm. In 1970 there was a contractor that started the transformation of the barn into his office.
We have now turned his office into living quarters. The grainery that was once his drafting room is now a bedroom that can be divided by curtains to make 2 rooms. The kitchen is fully working but does not include a dishwasher. The bathroom has a tub and shower. Washer and dryer on site. Master bedroom has a king size sleep number bed.
This is a country setting so keep in mind that there are critters out there.
