Images of Barn

On 2 September 1799, Theodor Schulz visited Christiansbrunn and wrote: "The barns are built on the hillsides, so that on one side, built into the foundation, are entrances for the animals to their stalls, and on the other side, above the stalls, is the threshing floor, across which one can drive."
