Archaeology students from Monmouth University plan to conduct tests on the barns at Little Silver’s Parker Homestead Friday to determine the ages of the structures. A similar examination was done on the site’s farmhouse, and founding indications that dated it back to 1720, making it one of the oldest houses in America.
The barns – one for horses, one for livestock and one for wagons – are slated for restoration work beginning as early as this month and paid for in part by a $250,000 Monmouth County Opens Spaces grant. More info is here on redbankgreen‘s All Good page. (Click to enlarge)
