220 Issaquenna Trial
City Directories and History: (Sleepy Hollow Barn) The J. C. Stribling Barn at “Sleepy Hollow,” built ca. 1900 by Jesse Cornelius Stribling (1844-1927) is architecturally significant as an impressive and atypical example of barn design and construction from the turn of the twentieth century. Built into the side of a hill to allow ground-level access to all stories this style of barn is commonly known as a “bank barn.” This form is usually found in New England and the Midwest, but is relatively rare in the Southeast. Additionally its construction of brick rather than
weatherboard siding is even more unusual in the region and in South Carolina. The barns high roof-line and front entrance gable give the barn a late Victorian period appearance. The jerkin-head-shaped, V-crimp metal-clad roof, with a steeply pitched intersecting gable over the main entry, is supported by eight square wood piers and corresponding timber trusses. 140,000 native red bricks, hand-made on site, were used in its construction and vary in color from terracotta to dark umber. The late Victorian appearance is enhanced by decorative latticed brickwork found around the windows and in the main entrance gable. Listed in the National Register October 22, 2001.
