Knipp and Stengel Ranch Barn

The Knipp and Stengel Ranch Barn (Sea Ranch Stable) is a large wood frame structure utilizing mortise and tenon construction. Built in the mid-1880s, the barn is the major structure remaining on the 4.38-acre remnant of the once-larger ranch. Also within the boundaries are an early (pre-1906) hay barn, a 1920s scale house, and a 1920s equipment building; these wood frame utilitarian structures contribute to the overall character of the property. An early barn (known also as the machine shop), built prior to the 1880s, recently collapsed; it has been removed and no longer contributes to the complex. The main barn has undergone some interior alterations and minor window changes, but remains largely intact.
