Description: 5367 Ninth Line. Conc 10 NDS, pt. Lot 3. This was a raised Two Bay barn intersected by a Central Ontario Gambrel barn. Constructed in a T-shaped plan, it had a smooth stone foundation, vertical board and batten siding, with metal sheeting on both gable type roofs. The Raised Two Bay barn is virtually identical to the Two Bay barn, except with the addition of a foundation storey, which is commonly used as a stable and thus reflects a larger livestock concentration on the farm. According to the Barn Inventory of the Planning and Heritage Department, 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." The house and barn on this property were formerly listed on the Heritage Register but were demolished in 1997. Description as of April 2011.
