Building: Salem Tavern II -- Jones Plantation Barn (Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, North Carolina)

Provenance note:
Dr. Beverly Jones (planter) and Julia Conrad Jones, first owner
Architectural note:
The barn is constructed of a heavy timber frame with pole rafters. Krause introduced features on the Tavern that became common in the post-Revolution years: oversized bricks laid in Flemish-bond, elliptical window arches, a central-passage plan, and the first front porch in the town.
Historical note:
The barn was moved from the Beverly Jones Farm in Bethania to the Salem Tavern lot in the 20th century. Salem Tavern is both a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
