Description

John Martin (18223-1907), a Bangor accountant and shopkeeper who wrote and illustrated five volumes of reflections and commentary on his life and the Bangor area, drew this barn plan on page 7 of his "Scrap Book No 3" that he began in 1867.

Martin wrote, "When I build my barn it will be like this if it comes under the head of a possibility. Model for a barn supposing the site is an elevation on a main thoroughfare or connected with a house where room can be obtained on lots conspicuous."
