The Stone Barn at Franklin Grove, IL
WELCOME TO THE STONE BARN       Stone Barn at Franklin Grove, IL 
The Stone Barn sits on the corner of Stone Barn Road and Daysville Road several miles north of Franklin Grove on what was first a 40-acre tract bought from the government on March 1, 1848 by Edward S. Hundson. It is surmised that the barn, an area landmark, was likely built by Hundson in the early to mid 1850's. The Stone Barn has outlasted the modes of farming and transportation that passed by it on the Daysville Road, a stage coach road in the 1830's from Peoria to Lee Center to Franklin Grove to Daysville and on to Oregon.
