Building a log barn in Limestone, Tennessee

Observe the diligent work it takes to raise a handmade log building—a two pen log barn with two 12×12 foot corrals for a horses or cows—with period drills, hammers, axes, saws, and other tools, likely from around the late 1700s to the early 1800s. This Townsends video, the second of two videos, captures the weekend work by hobbyists dressed in period clothing at the David Crockett Birthplace State Historic Park in Limestone, Tennessee.
