According to local historian John W. Logan, the original stone barn was built back in the 1870s by Lawrence C. Stumpf. He sold his land and the barn stood untouched and neglected until it's collapse over 100 years later.

Enter Mr. Richard Chamberlin, who read about the old stone barn and wanted to create a replica while improving on Nature. "Stone is a special mineral. It's got a certain unmatched beauty. And it doesn't rust," said Richard.

Construction on the main barn began August 8, 1988.  All the rocks were lovingly laid in place by hand, using no concrete or adhesive of any kind. Slowly the barn took shape with 12 hour days, 7 days a week. Two years, two months, two days, and two million pounds of stones later, what was once a dream became a reality!

Once the main barn was completed, which consists of four stalls, a tack shop, bedroom, and patio, the indoor arena with observation deck was the next to be built. Last, but certainly not least, ten 12x12 box stalls and a tack room were put in.
