A Barn from Boston

The Barn or “Lyon” in reference to the train station, Gare De Lyon, is the main building on the Big Rock Creek property. Experience the nostalgia of the 200-year-old timbers that were used to build the structure. Originally it was a traditional barn, one of the largest barns in western Wisconsin at the time it was built. The timbers are made up from old railroad ties and trestles from a railroad bridge from downtown Boston.

Look closely and you will see the stamps on them indicating where they came from. It is very apparent that the Siems brothers were a generation of engineering marvels! Today it is no longer a traditional barn but instead used for many events including weddings and wedding receptions, parties, festivals, gun clubs, retreats, and more. Nowadays, The Barn has come to be the focal point for all Big Rock Creek visitors.
