The Story

This the historic 1877 Star Barn in its original location with a reflecting pond. It is very likely one of the most photographed and well known barns in Pennsylvania and beyond, partly due to I-283 that was built directly behind the barn in 1970. You couldn’t miss the high white steeple of the central cupola driving by.

It is considered a classic example of Gothic Revival architecture. The barn and its outbuildings were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.

Since this photo was taken, it was taken down and reassembled further east in Lancaster County and serves as the centerpiece to a wedding and event complex.
