The Greenfield Historical Society is excited about its involvement with the program to extend quilt barn patterns to Highland, Fayette, and Ross Counties. On November 14, 2009, Suzi Parron, Georgia, visited Greenfield to collect information for her "Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement".
A brochure, Paint Creek Patterns, highlights the fifty plus quilt squares installed on barns in the three county area around Greenfield. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program or organization with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. The Ohio Arts Council has also produced a document Understanding the Value of the Ohio Quilt Barn Trail that provides an overview of the Ohio Quilt Barn Trail and looks beyond the purely artistic importance of quilt barns, highlighting their great value for the Appalachian region and their true potential in terms of the economic, social, and cultural strengthening of the region. Various local groups also aided in the funding of the brochure, including: the Greenfield Business and Professional Women, Greenfield Rotary, Edgewood Manor, and the Highland County Visitors Bureau. The Monkey Wrench pattern, sometimes called Churn Dash, hangs on the section of the 1830s barn that housed the shop.
The Colorado Square on the Orr barn celebrates the new state that joined the Union in 1876 during the American Centennial. This square, Electric Fan, dates from the early 1920s but is based on earlier pinwheel patterns. Just as quilt patterns were based on many utilitarian objects, they also celebrated special events in the quilters’lives. Flying Geese indicated an escape timed in the spring with the migrating birds and also sometimes indicated the direction to the next safe house. Double North Star, Sims Family Golf, Mike and Sharon Sims, 11801 Hull Road, Highland County. This square, displayed on the public Sims Family Driving Range, depicts the North Star, a navigational landmark for thousands of years.
This newer square, End of the Day, was chosen to reflect the rest at the end of a long day. The owners of this farm chose this pattern to commemorate all the kind people they met as they traveled across the country with their antique Oliver tractor collection.
The sail boat square, indicative of transportation, graces the barn of a farm used on the Underground Railroad. In the earliest quilts, the Star of Bethlehem was a large central design made of diamond shaped pieces.
The Improved Nine Patch square was chosen by Cheryl Martin after she received a collection of squares done by her aunt. Carpenter's Wheel, Grain & Hay Building, Greenfield Historical Society, 103 McArthur Way N, Highland County.
The old Greenfield Grain and Hay building is now home to the Greenfield Historical Society. The Dresden Plate pattern is a popular pattern that allows a quilter to show off their skill in piecing curves and arcs. Quilters have the ability to take similar patterns and different fabrics and create unique pieces as shown in this Star pattern variation. As a member of the Longaberger business, it is appropriate that Sandy Free chose this basket pattern for her barn. This is a beautiful example of creating a swirling, circular shape using squares and triangles. Tulip Basket, Joe Pat and Vickie Smith, 4482 Main Street (in the alley), South Salem, Ross County. Dolly Madison Star, Brenda and Bill Knapp, 236 McArthur Way N, Greenfield, Highland County.
This pattern was taken from an early New England Quilt Pattern "-Circa 1840" and is one of the many popular star patterns still used today. The owner and creator of this quilt square is a long-time quilter and a member of the local quilters club and has also hosted quilters from Germany.

Hi Don,I think that Chris is playing with symatics and you are quite correct that the fundamental feature of a Gambrel roof is that it has 2 roof pitches the lower part of the roof attached to the eaves being steeper than the upper part joining to the ridge.

The Ohio Arts Council is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally and economically. Recently the Royses removed the stucco on the house to reveal the original stone structure.
The owners of this Century Farm are descendants of a prominent abolitionist family of Highland County.
Family legends pass on the story of a slave hunter shot and buried on the farm during the tumultuous time after the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act in 1850. From the top of this ridge, the panoramic view, in any season, captures the beauty of this area. Appropriately, the building displays the Carpenter's Wheel, a square reflecting the settler's need to be a jack-of-all-trades and self-sufficient. Their square is Cross and Crown, a pattern with several variations, but all reflecting religious devotion. It is from an earlier pattern and as the Northwest Territory was settled and Ohio joined the original 13 states, it was named for the new state.
We focus on personalized service in the areas of real estate, commercial transactions, and general civil matters.
And yes, effort spent correcting people who are using a commonly accepted definition may be akin to tilting at windmills.
Cecil - English Historic Carpentry - page 145 - Church of St Mary the Virgin, Sheering, Essex ably illustrated by Hewett in fig 129 where he shows a type of roof that he refers to as preceeding the 17th century Gambrel roof. It was created in 1965 to "foster and encourage the development of the arts and assist the preservation of Ohio's cultural heritage". Phil and Margie Free chose this pattern to reflect their name and business interests in farming. Our size and location allow us to provide cost-effective solutions to meet the diverse legal needs of businesses and individuals throughout the State of Maine.
I have mocked up a drawing on Google Sketch up and would like some advise on how to improve it. The shape of the roof can vary quite a lot, as you noted, and I also don't like the ones where the lower pitch dominates, or those designs where the upper pitch is at all steep. Facts are facts, and if you want to continue the process of calling an orange an 'apple', as is the case with the word 'gambrel', go right ahead.
I should clarify first though that there are several methods for drawing the Mansard (most of which I found in James Newland's Carpenter's Assistant), and these methods devolve into two basic approaches:1. I believe I was crystal clear that I was not making an accusation of any kind - quite the opposite in fact. This roof form is also commonly known as a Mansard roof with the two terms being relatively interchangeable.
The number or letter to the left of each picture corresponds to the number or letter of the pattern in the brochure.
My main concern with this design is that the two queen posts (I think that's what it is called) just stop at the beam and do not follow through to the ground. I'm more interested in getting at the truth of the matter, and not wanting to perpetuate an old mistake. Treat the lower pitched portions as one giant A-frame, then divide the height of that A-frame, truncate it in other words, and construct a slack-pitched roof across the opening. That said, the use of 'gambrel' is not however a commonly accepted definition outside of vernacular practice.


I have seen a couple gambrel barns this way but is it safe for this size barn?Also, what size timber should I be using? The 2004 Dictionary of Architectural and Building Terms I linked to earlier obviously is not on board with 'common acceptance'. They clearly illustrate on page 40 the definitions for hipped roof with gablet and Mansard as per my previous advice. A Gambrel is a stick or piece of timber used to spread open and hang a slaughtered animal by its hind legs.
Just because something had been called the wrong thing for over 100 years doesn't make it any closer to being right.Mr.
The shape of the spread legs, with a stick between them, looks like the form of the letter 'A'.
The Dutch colonized Indonesia and borrowed this roof form from there, naming it 'Gamberil due to the resemblance to the slaughterhouse equipment - the sill crossing between the hips at the base of the 'gablet', as Corkhill calls it, being the part similar to the stick spread between the animal's legs.Sometime in the mid to late 1800's the term got misapplied, in a tract housing advertisement I believe, to the Mansard roof form, which comes in a 2-side and 4-side variant. I asked a French campanon his terms for both these roof shapes, and he answered 'Mansard' for both. For other American sources on this, you may wish to consult:Dictionary of Americanisms by John Russel Bartlett, 1848, pg. If we were in a room together, would you behave that way?I'm not overly annoyed at your remarks, and I also won't let them just slide. Connect the dots and the roof shape is developed: This is a general approach only - the particulars of your application may demand slight adjustments.
Most builders use a nail gun, so that is the correct way to frame a house, I suppose?Finally, one might interpret your statement in terms of 'appeal to belief', another fallacy. 166 (also readable online through Google books - look it up): Gambrel, a??A hipped roof of a house, so called from the resemblance to the hind leg of a horse which by farriers is termed the gambrela??.
As example, here's the cross section of the building I did, and you can see that the fold in the roof has been moved slightly down from the half-circle: This drop came about as a result of wanting to keep the upper roof pitches at a certain amount, identical to the each pitches, and some fiddling with framing details at the fold area. If you have reasoned argument to offer, or good historical evidence that contradicts my view, then please bring that forward. Since most people tend to conform to the view of the majority, convincing a person that the majority approves of a claim is often an effective way to get them to accept it. Library of Congress ISBN 0-415-31234-5) you will find it correctly illustrated (Google has this book available for online reading too -see pg.
If you accept the fact of language change, then I can't see how you can object to my efforts to 'engineer' change.
Or are you saying that we've had quite enough change now, and that you're planning to cling to the current meaning, thank you very much?That is my hope with this particular word - change it.
I am trying to keep the 12' stalls while also trying to keep the roof slope around 7-12 and 12-7. I thought if I showed how it had been borrowed wrongly in the first place, that the core meaning of the word meant something quite different than what it is now used for, how the word was defined in the past (1848) in a dictionary, and how authoritative sources now still keep to the correct definition, then maybe a bunch of people who appear to care about 'tradition' (whatever that means), people who might care about the meaning of something in 1850, might see the point. This is a challenge for me.Thanks a ton for that sketch, I can see clearly what you explained. It's not simply some quaint historical curiosity I'm bringing up, nor is it simply some difference in usage between French and English.
However, how would I attach the upper rafter to that?And yes, as it is now, the loft is taller than the ground floor. I looked at some post and beam gambrel barns and it looks to me that most lofts are taller (to me anyway) than the ground floor.
So, I'm happy to be in the company of Don Quixote then, and will continue my tilting at windmills - I prefer it to accepting something that is clearly wrong. This is actually a 36' wide horse barn with 12' stalls, but I kind of didn't want to copy someone else work, but I may have to do that.
