Hammerstone, Bloomsbury, New Jersey (40.629952, -75.108040)

Felling dates: Spring 1803, Winter 1803/4

Site Master 1607-1803 HSNJx1 (t = 11.08 HOLL2; 9.97 APNJx1; 9.13 WYDNJx1).

The Hammerstone Barn is a ground-level, three-bay, swing beam barn in Holland Township, New Jersey. It features a heavy timber frame with full-width cambered tie beams in all four bents.

Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the original structure was built from timbers felled in the spring of 1803 and the winter of 1803/4, suggesting that the building was constructed in the winter of 1803/4 or shortly thereafter.
