Gunn Cotton Crib

Gunn Cotton Crib

Gunn Cotton Crib - GUNCC

The Gunn Cotton Crib had already been knocked down by storm winds when BarnBeautiful was allowed access to the property.  The structure was also known as "The Gear House" around the farm.  Over the years the structure had been used to store various farm parts. Although many old plow parts were found in the structure during recovery, it's last use was as storage for cotton and cotton seeds.  While only a small quantity of wood was recovered, most of the wood and its tin were used as wall coverings for the Bennett Street Salon and Spa in Buckhead, Atlanta.
It was part of the original homestead which consisted of a two story home, Smokehouse, Cooks House, Wash house, Wood shed, Chicken Coop, Everyday Car Garage, Sunday Car Garage, Gear House, Mule Barn, Corn Crib, Cotton Crib, Out-house and Buggy House.
