The petting barn is constructed as a replica of barn designs of the 1800’s.  The two stalls in the back are forPetting Barnhorses or mules; overhead storage for hay and feed in the loft.

The overhang roof was designed to pull the wagon under to unload hay or grain, and also to protect the wagon from the weather.

The barn area is used during the Wilson County Fair to house small animals for the young and old alike to pet and enjoy.

The barn was built in 1992.
