Hay Barn

This structure was located on a Wayne County farm and was brought to Old Waynesborough in 1990.  It is an excellent example of a late 1800’s hay barn or corn crib commonly found in eastern North Carolina.  It was originally utilized to store winter food, primarily hay and ears of corn, for farm animals.  Separations exist in the exterior walls in order to permit the circulation of air to facilitate the drying process of the materials contained within.
