Title Note Detail of south corner and doorway to cowshed. Southeast elevation
Date 1952
Description This image shows a detail of the corner of a log cowshed that was built by John C. Clark in 1881. This is the south corner of the southeast elevation. There are fairly wide gaps between many of the logs. A small portion of the doorway is visible in this image, and the side of the door has been framed by a wooden board. The roof of the cowshed appears to be made of wooden shingles. This image was taken at the original site of the structure, near milepost 36.4 in Section 1E of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The building was disassembled and reconstructed at the Humpback Rocks Visitor Center and Mountain Farm, near milepost 5.8 in Section 1B of the Blue Ridge Parkway. This image was taken by C. S. Grossman in 1952.
