Join the Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes for The Barn Building Legacy of J.T.Wells & Sons, a program on the ingenious and magnificent Wells barns. John Talcott Wells, a native of Wheatland in Monroe County, NY, invented and patented an ingenious method of barn building that departed from traditional post and beam construction. Instead, he used a system of laminated trusses that balanced inward and outward forces, creating soaring, open spaces allowing access to the interior by horse-drawn wagons.
