Long Description:
"Built in the 1830s, the Shipley Barn is one of the oldest structures in Putnam County. A uniquely preserved example of half-dovetail notched log construction, it was built by master craftsmen for Abraham Buck, a leading Upper Cumberland pioneer and prosperous farmer. Acquired from Dr. Michael Shipley, the structure sits on Tennessee Technological University farm. Shipley's family was the last to use the barn. Today, it is used as a working facility by university agriculture students.
