Gunn Equipment Shed

Gunn Equipment Shed

Gunn Equipment Shed - GUNES


The Gunn Equipment Shed was built adjacent to the Corn Crib.  The shed was used to store various pieces of farm equipment and to protect them from the elements when not in use.  The shed dismantle began in April of 2011 and was completed in March of 2012.  The dismantle of the 40' x 20' structure began with the removal of the tin roof.  The tin was re-purposed as wall covering at Bennett Street Salon & Spa in Atlanta, Georgia.  Once the tin had been removed the recovery of the beautifully aged boards along the sheds back wall began.  Much of these boards were extremely weathered and provided many unique pieces for wall art.  The posts holding up the walls to the structure were all cedar tree post and took much effort to recover properly. 
As part of the of the Gunn Farm Homestead, the story of the Equipment Shed started in 1918, when Mary E. Reese sold 118 acres to James J. Gunn for approximately $9500.

Mr. Gunn then began farming and grew mostly cotton on the land as well as corn for the horses and mules.

The homestead consisted of a two story home, Smokehouse, Cooks House, Washhouse, Wood shed, Chicken Coop, Everyday Car Garage, Sunday Car Garage, Gear House, Mule Barn, Corn Crib, Cotton Crib, Out-house and Buggy House.

Dismantle completed:  March 2012
