wooden granary and main gate to corrals…

The wood frame granary was built in 1908 and is the oldest building on the property. It was most likely built by Philip Krieger, property owner at the time.

The granary mostly stored barley for livestock. The east side of the granary provided storage for additional feed for cattle and sheep.
