A living sculpture gallery

Hay Barn

The Hay Barn is under half a mile from the Orientation Center, situated between the Hay Barn Meadow and Research Woods.

 

At the time of its construction, the Hay Barn was a barn for hay pressing and storage. In 1915, a fire gutted the original structure, leaving only the stone walls. The ruins were then converted to an outdoor sculpture gallery where individual marble statues were places in linear arrangements along the walls.
