Bank barn

Frederick County, Virginia 

Farming continued at Belle Grove Plantation until 1990. This bank barn dates from 1918 and is typical of northern Shenandoah Valley farm architecture which is influenced by Pennsylvania German styles. Bank barns are often built into the side of a hill to allow access to both the lower bay and the loft from ground level.
