Magicman,interesting, with 110 families that was big,I would feel. We have a little history here,on the hill,school house,post office But nothing of that size. As stated in the link,people did not travel like we do now. First off they did not really have the means and they did not need to. Everything they needed was in a few miles of them.
When we go to Lancaster County,PA I have noticed the cantilever on barns. These are all old barns too.I don't really want to say cantilever barns because it is only on one side or end of the barns.

   I'm just across the river from Lancaster Co and we have lots of old barns with the overhang on one side, in fact my barn has it and I was told this barn was built in 1904. I've always thought it was to leave the doors open into the livestock area without getting rain and snow in. But then what do I know.

Lynn, I forgot to mention the museum in Tellico Plains has hundreds of old telephones, switches, operator stations and gear. They also have a nice collection of guns.
