Located north of Independence in Montgomery County, the Brown Barn is part of the James B. Brown farmstead that dates to 1880. The 2 ½-story sandstone and wood barn was built in 1885 and is nestled into a bluff out of which the stone for the barn was quarried. The barn is an example of the bank barn property type, which is characterized by its on-grade access to two levels, either through the use of a natural or soil bank or by a constructed ramp. It is nominated for its architectural and agricultural history.
