Description: 1901 Orr Road. Plan 914, Blk E. This Central Ontario Gambrel barn is next to Lewis Bradley Park. Little is known of the history of the barn but it is connected to the Pattinson family. The barn, a Central Ontario Gambrel, has a moulded concrete block foundation, horizontal tongue and groove siding, and an asphalt gambrel roof. The Central Ontario barn is virtually ubiquitous in its distribution, although the heaviest concentrations lie in the northern counties. In some areas the gambrel variety is most dominant, while in others, the gable appears more frequently. In the southern counties, the gambrel roof seems to be the most popular. This fact is certainly supported by the pervasiveness of the gambrel roof on surviving Central Ontario Barns within the City of Mississauga… In general, the foundation storey served as the stable, while the upper storey consisted of three types of space: the Drive Floor (used for work space and storage of tools and machinery), the Granary (used for storing crops and for loading crops on to wagons outside the barn), and the Storage Mow (used for storage of hay, straw, unthreshed grains, and other crops). Many barns also featured a loft. Description as of April 2011.
